Summer Workshop – Wicked Problems: Investigating Real-World Problems in the Biology Classroom

June 18 - June 23
Harvery Mudd College, 301 Platt Blvd
Claremont, CA 91711 United States
+ Google Map

Climate change. Emerging infectious diseases. Water quality. Crop production. We invite you to explore how to use wicked problems like these to engage your students in your classroom, and beyond. Wicked problems are open-ended, complex problems without clear solutions, which involve both social and scientific challenges. These problems are a space to add effective pedagogical approaches such as case pedagogies, and community based or place-based learning. Wicked problems also provide a rich space to include systems thinking, interdisciplinary approaches, and quantitative skills such as data science and modeling.
