This course is a great opportunity for students looking to directly explore the broad world of design. Some students feel that they have an inner instinct that inclines them to be creative and “design” ideas or products, but often they do not know how to channel and develop their spark. During this course they will learn to do just that. Students will develop new skills in observation, ideation, problem finding, and problem solving. They will share their ideas by learning how to communicate and critique them. They will also learn about the experiences, stories, challenges and ethics in the world of design. Classroom sessions will be combined with site visits and meetings with designers of different fields.
