In this course students consider how to use their own design thinking project as a dynamic learning opportunity to initiate change. Students propose an advocacy plan, which includes how to sustain the project and a professional support network during change.
Upon completion of this course, students are expected to be able to do the following:
- Engage in a new design thinking project.
- Synthesize literature from the entire program along with multiple additional perspectives to expand one’s viewpoint, question assumptions, and reflect on research-based themes related to a design thinking project.
- Create an advocacy and sustainability plan/activity to advance the findings or application of a design thinking project.
- In an interactive digital/public format, publish themes uncovered in an investigation of literature to demonstrate how it is initiating change coupled with a design thinking project.
