Description: Designing involves bodies of knowledge and sets of skills, but at its heart is an apparently messy process of creativity as learners take the same task and pursue it in very different ways and in different directions. Decision-making in a state of uncertainty is a key skill, both for students and for faculty. Participants (individually and in reference groups) will undertake a short pencil / paper problem-solving activity that will be used to reflect on the nature of designing and problem solving from various points of view. In particular we will consider the pedagogic strategies, the opportunities and the problems of encouraging risk-taking behaviors with learners.
