Content

This unit will investigate 'design thinking' as a strategic methodology and problem solving process. Taking a multi-discipline, interdisciplinary approach, students will be required to use 'design thinking' as a problem solving process. 'Design thinking' methods will require students to adopt a human-centered approach to innovation that draws on their skills to integrate the needs of people, the possibilities of technology, and the requirements of business and society as a whole. Students will work individually and in workshop teams, the final assessments will be a combination of research and practice outcomes. Students will use 'Design thinking' methods to address a 'wicked problem'.
