Abstract [en]

Systems thinking encompasses a set of skills forunderstanding, analyzing, and working with systems consisting ofmultiple interconnected elements and exhibiting emergent properties.Such systems are all around us, and helping students to develop suchskills is central to equipping them to tackle professional and societalchallenges. While the implementation of systems thinking approaches ineducation is increasingly widespread in disciplines such as biology,engineering, and geosciences, it is as yet not widespread in chemistry.This article aims to identify challenges in chemistry education that couldbe turned into opportunities for introducing concepts relevant tosystems and systems thinking, so that students improve their conceptualunderstanding of chemistry at the same time as they develop theirsystems thinking skills. Suggestions and examples of possible productivepedagogical approaches are also outlined and discussed.
