Develop the knowledge and skills needed to explore the smallest and largest scales of the Universe. You'll learn to describe, analyse, test and explain phenomena in the physical world objectively and quantitatively, using appropriate mathematical tools and experimental methods.
This module is about managing complex situations. Managing is ultimately about taking action in complex interconnected situations, where others involved may have contrasting understandings, motivations and interests, and where conflicts inevitably arise. You will develop your understanding of complex situations using robust tools from the traditions of systems practice to think strategically about change and uncertainty. The situations that you choose to work with in the module to develop your practice with systems tools can either derive from your existing, or aspiring, professional capacity or simply be of general interest to you. Although most of the work for this module can be done either online or offline, part of the module is presented exclusively online. You'll be encouraged to use online forums to interact with other students in appreciating multiple perspectives, including your own.
