Contemporary change has challenged educators to construct methods that 
develop knowledge for the times. This classroom action research case study 
investigated an innovative strategy created to inspire student insights on 
the realities of a change-based environment. The strategy created a context 
of contemporary change in the classroom by structuring a written assignment 
to mimic a characteristic of complexity theory. The implications of this 
approach provided a new strategy for higher education instructors to create 
assignments that actively construct knowledge about the real-world environment 
of change.
