Innovation: designing for change free course icon Level

 

Innovation: designing for change

Innovations emerge from complex, dynamic, iterative processes. But how do designers, engineers, entrepreneurs, managers and users create opportunities and generate ideas for innovation? How are ideas developed into successful products, services and systems? What are the impacts of design and innovation? This online module uses a range of contemporary case studies to explore such questions. Its concerns go beyond innovation for commercial advantage to consider how, through responsible design, innovation can contribute to the development of a more sustainable future. The module includes a design and innovation project in which you will identify and research a problem, and develop your own solution.
