Friday Institute Crosstalk: Preparing the Next Generation to Address the “Wicked Problems” of Society

Join the Friday Institute’s Innovations in STEM Education Research team for this cross-talk session about their work. This session will examine transdisciplinary and multidisciplinary educational approaches to addressing society’s greatest challenges. What will it take to address complex problems that will face our global society? From climate change and vaccine hesitancy to training the next generation of education and convergence researchers, join other educators in exploring these issues.

Friday Institute cross–talk sessions give internal teams an opportunity to briefly share a portion of their work and stimulate discussion across all teams at the Friday Institute and College of Education to further collaborations, introduce new concepts, address research design problems and more.
