DESCRIPTION:
Design Thinking investigates "Individual as Innovator" by working on design problems in a human, interactive, collaborative, and prototypical way. Students will gain an understanding of the methodology and language used in human-centred design as they problem solve for real and fictitious clieents. Participants will empathize, define, ideate, prototype and test their way to solutions for business, visual, online, and print media using traditional tools and industry standard software programs. Project-based assignments will develop a foundation in design thinking suitable for those going on to study in a variety of design disciplines.
