2018 AF Faculty Research Seminar

Problem Solving as Craft

Faculty Research Seminar: Problem Solving as Craft

The Aydelotte Foundation’s next faculty research seminar, held during Spring 2018, will bring together participants from the humanities, social sciences and natural sciences to consider what characterizes both routine (well defined) and non-routine (ill defined) problems across disciplines, and the development of the capacity to think about problems effectively. Co-convened by Adam Light, Ann Renninger and Kathryn Riley, discussion will be informed by research on problem solving, learning and motivation.
