(AS-PROBS) We expect students to be able to assess problems and solutions through the multiple lenses of human needs - desirability, technical practicality - feasibility, and financial viability and sustainability.

The triadic "desirable/feasible/viable" mantra is repeated so often that it's easy to just assume that it's in our blood and that it characterizes everything we do. But for most of us, it requires deliberate attention and practice. We expect our students to be (1) mindful of what these concepts mean; (2) have the discipline of attending to them explicitly in every project; and (3) have a repertoire of tools for making sure that attending happens effectively.
