Course description

The world is changing at an unprecedented pace and ambiguity is everywhere. Design thinking, innovation, agile, and many other approaches to problem solving have never been more important. But often these methods are only accessible to an exclusive club of people who are certified in a methodology and allowed to practice design and innovation. In this course, we believe in radical access to design and innovation. We believe that for design and innovation to change the world for the better it has to be inclusive, human centered, and accessible to everyone everywhere. In this course, students learn how to become innovation(ish), and leverage the foundational mindsets and abilities of design thinking and innovation to make change in their lives, organizations, and the world. Students hone their ability to learn from others, find unexpected insights, tell world changing stories, and generate innovative ideas through ongoing collaborative course work.
