課程概述 Course DescriptionPlease refer to the English version
As the challenges and opportunities facing society grow more complex, and as stakeholders grow more diverse, design thinking" is playing a greater role in finding meaningful paths forward. Design thinking is a formal method for practical, creative resolution of problems or issues, with the intent of an improved future result. In this regard it is a form of solution-focused thinking which starts with a goal (a better future situation) instead of solving one specific problem. Design thinking integrates empathy for the context of a problem, creativity in the generation of insights and solutions, and rationality in analyzing and fitting various solutions to the problem context. The goal of Design Thinking is "matching people’s needs with what is technologically feasible and viable as a business strategy" Students expect to learn by knowing about how designers approach problems and the methods which they use to ideate, select and execute solutions, individuals and businesses will be better able to improve their own problem solving processes and take innovation to a higher level. Design thinking is an iterative problem solving process of discovery, ideation, and experimentation that employs design based techniques to gain insight and yield innovative solutions for virtually any type of organizational or business challenge, prominently including those within public service. In "Design Thinking" course, we will unpack each step of the design thinking process and become familiar with the design thinker's toolkit. Students will develop skills as ethnographers, visual thinkers, strategists, and storytellers through a hybrid of seminar discussions and collaborative projects. Over the course, students will directly apply what they have learned to cultural and creative industries, public service and social entrepreneurial challenges about which they are passionate: they will untangle the complexities of related policy and explore innovative ways to create real impact.
