CP2408 - Design Thinking and Creative IT Industries

Credit points: 3
Year: 2019
Student Contribution Band: Band 2
Administered by: College of Science and Engineering

This subject provides students with the skills to develop clickable prototypes as a path to creative software solutions. The subject brings together aspects of design thinking, lean principles, and the agile process. Students will learn about the importance of collaborative design and managing teamwork. Students will continue to develop self-reflection to promote students' understanding of their own capacities and an awareness of the knowledge economy. An essential and mandatory component of the subject is participation in a two-day design sprint involving students from all design thinking subjects. This offers students the opportunity to develop mentorship skills and experience rapid prototyping.
