"From Ideas to Action" will teach you how to generate creative ideas and bring those ideas into life so others can engage with your vision for the future.
The course takes 'design thinking' as a point of departure. We will both read theory on approaching the world as a designer and engage in actual design processes.
At this course, you will gain insights into and practice three skills aimed at bringing ideas to action:
The background is theories of design that inform the processes in the course. Throughout the course, the student will undergo a design process reflecting on this, so that the student will later be equipped to manage and facilitate creative processes.
Throughout the course, we work with design challenges that relate to real world issues in groups.
Through the module, the student must gain knowledge and understanding of:
theories and methods of particular relevance for design and design thinking
scientific issues within design and design thinking
The student must through the module acquire skills in:
selecting appropriate scientific methods and tools within the area design and design thinking
assessing and choosing between appropriate scientific theories, methods and tools and, on this basis, discussing analysis and/or solution models within design and design thinking
The student must through the module acquire competences for:
independently applying theoretical and methodological knowledge which is relevant for understanding and solving specific issues within design and design thinking
