This course builds upon the Research and Development Methods course by offering students the opportunity to experiment with various approaches to the integration of design and research methodologies. In a semester-long project that spans planning, research, implementation and testing, students will experience the unfolding of the design process, with special attention given to the use of iteration and prototyping as a means to generate knowledge and/or innovative solutions. Students gain a theoretical as well as a practical understanding of how to organize and optimize the design process as well as the critical skills to reflect on the design process and its outcomes.
