New stuff does not emerge; rather, it is properties of the higher level entities that emerge. What emerges is a new level of reality corresponding to evolutionary or historical stages. Because these properties are properties of complex organizations of matter, they emerge only when the appropriate lower level material conditions are present. What emerges is novel; it did not exist before the process of emergence. What emerges is unpredictable, and could not have been known analytically before it emerged.

By taking engineering practice as an example, Zhou (2012) suggested that it is separate from problems in which the number of variables is severely constrained, and problems can be solved by the use of knowledge and techniques common to all involved and towards a ‘complex system’ that is so heterogeneous that interdisciplinary interactive groups sharing perspectives and information are needed to create and control them. There is a series of constraints on the solutions that those engineers have to consider when they are solving the problem, 4 Fostering Creative Problem Solvers in Higher Education such as technical function, economic feasibility, safety requirements, ethical issues, and resource considerations, etc.

These points drive the structure of the following sections by linking 1) problem solving, 2) group learning, 3) interdisciplinary learning, 4) project management, and 5) facilitation with PBL. Problem solving is viewed as a component of PBL and some universities put more emphasis on it than others. For example, the seven steps to problem solving developed by the University of Maastricht are often used in cognitive science (De Graff & Kolmos, 2007). In the recent work related to PBL, this 12 Fostering Creative Problem Solvers in Higher Education issue has been discussed mainly focusing on the role of open, ill-defined or real-life problems or projects (Tan, 2009) and a collaborative problem solving context (Zhou & Kolmos, 2013) in creativity.
