How can we better prepare and motivate students to tackle large-scale systemic challenges? What pedagogical methods and tools can be employed? This Open Mini will highlight a series of concrete strategies for supporting transdisciplinary innovation on real-world problems.
Hybrid strategies derived from Design Thinking, Strategic Doing, and feminist pragmatism as well as best practices from motivational learning and community-engagement research will be highlighted and tools tested. In addition, lessons learned from classroom implementation will be shared.
