There are course requisites for this subject. See access conditions.


Learning to clearly and convincingly communicate what design is and why it is of value to non-designers is a complex task. In this subject, students learn how to articulate and demonstrate the value of design within teams, across organisations, and wider communities. Students learn how to identify assumptions and potential risks and connect their projects to broader societal issues. Building on these insights, students develop a communication strategy, including a short video, for presenting themselves as a designer and sharing their work with industry and other stakeholders in local and global contexts.
