  • Design Research
  • Research Methods
This course builds upon material covered in the introductory Research and Development Methods course, offering students an opportunity to experiment with the development of advanced approaches to the integration of research and design methodology. Relationships between the theoretical frameworks in which methods are grounded and the contexts and conditions in which they are applied will be examined in a project-oriented manner similar to that of the introductory course, but the breadth of such exploration will narrow as students delve deeper into the process of developing methodologies that are tailored to specific domains of interest (much as they might be expected to do in the context of developing a thesis). As students engage in this process — a process that is intrinsically experimental — they will draw heavily upon managerial and organizational skills covered in other courses and, in so doing, will encounter a rich opportunity to demonstrate the value of an education that spans the disciplines of design and management.
