94672 Creative Methods and Entrepreneurial Initiatives

Anti-requisite(s): 81538 Frame Innovation AND 81540 Technology, Methods and Creative Practice


This subject focuses on understanding how methods and creative practice can provoke innovative ideas and support their realisation. Through undertaking a client brief, students are challenged to critically explore a diverse range of multidisciplinary methods for their generative potential and underlying worldviews, epistemologies and ways of sensing. Teams probe for insights and shape processes for discovery, create frameworks for critiquing and judging ideas, all while identifying and dealing with unknowns. This subject also engages students with entrepreneurial practices in different professional contexts, ranging from tech start-ups to intrapreneurial approaches in public sector organisations. Students shape initiatives according to their personal values, interests and talents, consider resources and practicalities, experiment, identify and communicate potential value for different stakeholders, and make decisions about whether to pivot, persevere or abandon entrepreneurial initiatives.
