Abstract: The great challenge is a complex problem, which is widespread in society and affects a large population. There may be several possible solutions. Incorporating major challenges into higher education curricula can promote the development of cooperative problem-solving skills, while providing relevant practical opportunities to experience the dynamics of real-world work. Although big challenges are becoming more and more common in higher education, so far, there is no comprehensive description of how big challenges are incorporated and the learning results of participating in big challenge work. In this scoping review, we examined and mapped the evidence status of the use of big challenges in higher education. We conducted a review based on the methodology of the Johanna Briggs Instituteogy for scoping reviews and considered quantitative, qualitative, and mixed-methods studies as well as literature reviews, program descriptions, and opinion papers published in English without limitations on year of publication. We used a data extraction tool to synthesize and present our findings in a tabular form with accompanying narrative summaries. The results reveal a growing global interest in the use of grand challenges in higher education while highlighting a lack of rigorous empirical evidence on the impact on student learning.
