Design thinking, design-based innovation, coevolution, problem-solving


In this subject students learn how solutions and problems co-evolve in design-based, creative problem-solving. Students develop proficiency in utilising iteration methods that support effective co-evolution. To achieve these learning outcomes students continue to apply the frame creation methodology to their nominated industry project initiated in 81534 Problem Framing. Multiple stakeholders are included to develop cross-organisational frames and solutions. Students are guided in this process through weekly studios, guest lectures and peer feedback.
