In this chapter, the authors show how research in design methods can be integrated with research in learning to teach students to cope with challenging, ill-defined problems. They provide examples of courses in which students are encouraged to see problems from different perspectives and reflect on the process of problem solving itself. This type of reflection has been woven into the authors’ own teaching of Management in four ways: by engaging in reflective problem solving, by approaching problems as researchers would, by confronting theory with practice and building new theories, and by turning process into subject matter. The authors describe these approaches and provide examples of their application in practice.
