Great discussions at the University Learning and Teaching Conference

The team really enjoyed discussing our preliminary findings with colleagues at the recent University Learning and Teaching Conference and meeting more people who are interested in wicked problems.  We will be getting in touch and adding people to our mailing list soon.

We got lots of useful ideas about what competences students might need to be good at dealing with wicked problems. People suggested:

capacity to engage in ethical debates

being able to cope with ambiguity

being willing to engage when you are not sure you are right

empathy

compassion

listening

adaptability

group work skills

resilience

appreciation of diverse perspectives

confidence and willingness to take risks

being able to take an evidence based approach

being able to do interdisciplinary work

being able to draw on perspectives from the humanities

… and more.

What a great list!
