GDES 3B40
Exploration, Insight and Foresight in Design
0.50 Credit(s)
Studio/Seminar
Prerequisite: 8.5 credits, including all first-year requirements (5.0 credits)
Significant possibilities for design are at the intersection of human behaviour and new technology. These possibilities aid the designer in creating new experiences, spaces and products to benefit humankind.

The focus of this course is the understanding of the motivation behind human behavior and the use of this understanding towards envisioning future product and service opportunities. This course explores methodologies used to discover the 'signals' emitted by new patterns of human behaviour.

Students will also learn to inspire a creative culture of innovation through exploration, discovery and learning, both within a team structure and their solo practice."
