Mobilities Design: Concept and Diagram


Content, progress and pedagogy of the module

The objective is to introduce students to the two of the key tools within mobilities design: the concept and the diagram. The course introduces to the nature of conceptual thinking and diagrammatical analysis as a way of analyzing and understanding mobilities. Various approaches to conceptual development and analysis are explored as well as the manifold applications of diagrams to mobilities analysis are discussed. The course illustrates concepts and diagrams both theoretically as well as with case based examples.
