Approaches to Wicked Problems


Approaches to Wicked Problems is an intensive service learning unit that offers enquiry-based learning, leadership training and develops valuable skills transferable to later studies and employment. It is delivered by the McCusker Centre for Citizenship at UWA in partnership with community organisations and networks. The first unit took place in January-February 2020 in collaboration with the WA Alliance to End Homelessness.

This experiential unit is grounded in project-based learning where students work in small groups on a real-world problem or need with and for community partners and the people they serve. Students participate in activities and learning focused on:

- The nature of wicked problems

- Problem solving using a design thinking approach

- How to do collaboration well

- The nature and scope of the relevant community topic
