About the Course

From the very start of the specialization, your assignments will be geared toward tackling a complex issue of your choice that you face in your career path, industry, or field. Each phase of the course builds up to a briefing paper that analyzes, evaluates, and attempts to solve a highly complex problem. Not only does this course teach you a skill set, but it puts you further down the road in understanding the problems of your chosen field. It advances your knowledge of your own field by teaching you to look at it in new ways. This is the CAPSTONE where the scaffolding of our problem solving and innovation skills will bear fruit in a series of preparatory assignments to make your briefing paper as effective as possible....

(2) I think that it should be an obligatory part of educational curriculum in order to prepare youths to live in the VUCA (V-volatile, U-uncertain, C-complex, A-ambiguous)

(3) These will let them:

a. find a meaning in their lives in order to avoid depression, aggression and/or an addiction (as per Victor Frankl).

b. "Rather than prepare a man to the position to be taken, to teach him to create for itself a sphere of action, socially fruitful, and corresponding to its individuality…”

Thanks to the Big History Team !

A great to finish this specialisation. It's different from everything I've studied on Coursera. Big History connects knowledge across disciplines and do it brillantly. This course is about doing a briefing paper based on your first 3 courses.
