About this Unit
Professional practice across many disciplines has evolved toward a co-creative model where stakeholders, human and environmental contexts and the integration of an interdisciplinary approach is seen to accelerate multiple solution developments and innovation. Students are introduced to design research methods and professional design practice in a human-centred discovery project gaining strategic problem solving and critical thinking skills as a core outcome. Special emphasis is placed on lifelong learning, academic literacy and professional skills including information literacy, leveraging knowledge sets, project management, and design innovation all of which equip students for future interactions in academic and professional contexts.
