81534 Problem Framing

6cp; 2hpw x 11wks (Spring session)
There are course requisites for this subject. See access conditions.

‘Design Based Innovation’, ‘Public Sector Innovation Practice’


In this subject, students have the opportunity to advance their innovation skills by exploring a self-selected complex problem from their own professional practice and developing an innovation strategy in response. Students use frame creation, a design-based innovation methodology as the guiding framework over the course of the programme. Within collaborative groups students learn to apply design research methods to map out the nature and perspectives of the chosen problem; they design and facilitate an engagement process to open new, shared understanding. The subject programme culminates with students producing a proposed framing or course of action towards resolving their chosen problem. Students are guided in this process through weekly tutorials, guest lectures, and peer feedback.
