About this Unit
From 2020, this unit will be replaced by 301280 - Human Centred Design Research Methods. Professional practice across many disciplines has evolved toward a co-creative model where a better understanding of 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 three discovery projects 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, designing for sustainable systems (guided by the global United Nations Sustainable Development Goals UNSDGs) and teamwork, all of which equip students for subsequent academic and professional contexts.
