This subject focuses on understanding how technology, methods and creative practice can provoke innovation. Participants' ideas for designing an innovative solution in the context of undertaking a central project for a client are rethought. Faced with a client's complex challenge, participants create propositions in a collaborative multidisciplinary environment, shape processes of discovery and exploration, generate solutions, develop visual literacy, and create frameworks for critiquing and judging proposals. The subject builds on values such as risk-taking and inquisitiveness, promoting participants' potential for research, analysis and creative practice.
