About this Unit
From 2020, this unit will be replaced by 301282 - Co-Designing Change with Local Communities. Creating new designs that interpret both the functional needs and emotional desires in new and exciting ways are important to the success and longevity of products and services. New designs are also important to the organisations that sponsor their research and development. Active project work through creative practice in developing and building new solutions is represented in each of the assessments. Students will research, conceptualise, and present their innovations in response of practical context-based challenges. The designs will be informed by human-centred design principles, sustainability, and fit-for purpose integrated production process considerations that bring entrepreneurial ideas to life. Theory and practice-based outcomes are advanced through real-life scenarios, guest speakers and site visits while modern university workshops environments will be used for prototyping, laser cutting and 3D printing. This unit may be taken as a stand-alone elective or as the first in a series of creative design studios.
