This unit develops self-awareness as a collaborative designer; advancing skills in futures thinking, experimentation, prototyping and radical innovation by curating innovation methods for complex problems. It features industry and/or Design Factory Global Network partnerships.
DFM Applied Innovation units work in unison, where a dynamic learning plan guides authentic learning experiences; such as sprints, workshops, in-depth projects and internships. Students explore professional capabilities; scaffolding mastering of design activities, research-led design, being a collaborative designer, and design facilitation and/or leadership. Working on diverse challenges gives students opportunity to identify areas they may specialise in design fields.
