Description

What is design thinking and how can it be incorporated in our day-to-day situations? How can we expand our creativity by introducing different directions into our thought process? In this course, we visit brainstorming techniques through role-play exercises in a team environment and learn how to gather meaningful data through a variety of simulations and activities. We also increase our dexterity by navigating the two- and three-dimensional worlds, with the creation of a variety of scale and full-size prototypes and presentation boards. We explore how to sketch quickly and effectively by analyzing different techniques, and learn the value of working on a team project and working through feedback. The course culminates with a presentation of research techniques, thinking processes and final outcomes.
