Certain challenges facing Western Australian communities are complex or 'wicked', with demographic, infrastructural, political, cultural and economic dimensions. In this unit, students will form small teams to address different dimensions of social challenges, working collaboratively with academic staff and the unit partners (community groups, industry or government).
Approaches to Wicked Problems SVLG3008 offers enquiry-based learning, leadership training and develops valuable skills transferable to later studies and employment. Further skills developed by students include self-awareness, deep listening, inclusive communication, and teamwork.
