CP1803 - Design Thinking

Credit points: 3
Year: 2015
Student Contribution Band: Band 2
Administered by: College of Business, Law & Governance

This subject provides students with the design process, interpretation, ideation, experimentation, evolution of design solutions, design formulation and design thinking. Students will develop essential design skills of creating, imaging, generating, iterating, communicating and consolidating. Collaboratively students will work together in teams to design, iterate, implement and validate computing solutions. Through projects, students will develop problem solving skills, communication skills, presentation skills, project management skills and also build creative systems for business cases. Students will learn basic approaches to creative group problem solving in multidisciplinary teams in the form of one-day "sprint" or "hackathon" event. The 'sprint' environment used in this subject will provide students an opportunity to develop these skills via a short-term practical exercise (or single day 'sprint') to collectively analyse a problem, design a practical solution and implement a solution in a single day.
