COURSE DESCRIPTION

GDES 4B08
Think Tank 3: Action
0.50 Credit(s)
Studio/Seminar
Prerequisite: GDES 3B54 Think Tank 2: Consideration
and 13.0 credits, including all first-year and second-year requirements (10.0 credits)
In the context of design and humanity and what is ultimately possible, Think Tank 3: Action builds on Think Tank 1: Consideration and Think Tank 2: Awareness. Working with teams composed of faculty from diverse backgrounds and invited specialists, students will be exposed to, and welcome to debate, multiple points of view.
Developing research methodologies and the skills to implement solutions to issues-based societal problems, students will be expected to initiate actions that will directly and positively affect the world around them. This interdisciplinary course allows students to apply what they have learned within the contemporary and constantly evolving context of local and international issues with project work that will have genuine value to society.
Notes: All Think Tank courses are intended to augment and inform the core studio classes from each of the six design disciplines and to introduce students from the Faculty of Art to the Faculty of Design’s underlying philosophy.
