The Search for Integrative Thinkers with Mirian Graddick-Weir

April 26, 2012

Mirian Graddick-Weir, recipient of the University of Michigan Lifetime Achievement Award in Talent Management, was recently featured on HBR.com.  Her article How to Educate More Creative Problem-Solvers delves into how “we must inspire students to find value in pursuing a career in science. K-12 science education has traditionally focused on memorizing discrete facts rather than understanding larger concepts and how they are connected to one another to create the exciting ‘big ideas’.”

She promotes integrative thinking to help students both in and out of the classroom to understand the broader picture, and prepare them to address larger challenges.
