Design-based Innovation, Frame Creation


In this subject students have the opportunity to advance their innovation skills by exploring a complex, real world problem and develop an innovation strategy in response. Students use frame creation, a design-based innovation methodology, as the guiding framework over the course of the program. Students learn to apply design research methods to map out the nature and perspectives of the chosen problem; they design and facilitate an engagement process to open new, shared understanding. The subject culminates with students producing a proposed framing or course of action towards resolving the problem as well as planning a workshop using the frame creation methodology. Students are guided in this process through videos, animations, readings, guided exercises and online group
