Wicked Problems - The Challenge & Opportunity for Higher Education

PROFESSOR KEVIN BELL | WESTERN SYDNEY UNIVERSITY

 

The complexity of choice and opportunity in modern day higher education is daunting, but hell, so is modern life. Life at times seems to be a swirl of uncertainty and too many options.

Should we be jumping onboard with Blockchain? What can predictive analytics tell us and how come no-one saw that coming? How about launching AR/VR? And is gamification done or is it not actually here yet?

In this presentation, Professor Bell will discuss the challenge of the wicked problem that is global higher education and will suggest strategies and tactics to assess efficacy providing tactics for educators to embrace uncertainty while gamefully experimenting with emergent technologies and teaching principles.
