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, industry-based 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 program. 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 culminates with students producing a proposed framing or course of action towards resolving their chosen problem. Students are guided in this process through videos, animations, readings, guided exercises, online group discussions and peer feedback.
