  • Research Methods
  • Business for Design
  • Innovation
This course explores the use of design processes as responses to complex problems. The course will expose students to various research design methods that introduce the practice of 'designing with' others to identify and assess the value that design can bring. Students will examine accounts of how expert designers think and work, and analyze these accounts against their own emerging practices. Students will explore these concepts and how they can be integrated into their own design processes, including business innovation and modeling. Various methods for prototyping those practices will provide students the opportunity to hone their agency and value. Students will produce a document of their process as the main component of course work along with a design process proposal and reflections.
