In this course, students will learn the vocabulary of design methods and gain an understanding of design processes. The class will be organized around small group projects that will involve writing, sketching, and creating simple prototypes using cardboard and other material, and students’ personal computers. The course will be a fast-paced introduction: you will not become an expert, but you will gain insights into the concept of human centered design. We will begin with the design of a simple product and work our way towards the design of more complex systems of products and services, and then on to the design of a business.
