The Innovation and Creative Exchange (ICE) presents a blueprint for challenge-led learning within Higher Education (HE). It uses a combination of wicked and commercial challenges to develop knowledge exchanges and communities of practice for learning. ICE provides a dynamic and unique environment outside the traditional curriculum for undergraduate (UG) students from different disciplines to work together to build sustainable networks. It introduces disruptive parameters to impact on learning, placing students in a time-controlled environment, challenging students both creatively and technically. It was found that students who engaged in interdisciplinary challenge-led learning scenarios developed core skills associated with commercial awareness.
