COURSE DESCRIPTION

GDES 2B03
Think Tank 1: Awareness
0.50 Credit(s)
Studio/Seminar
Prerequisite: 2.5 first-year studio credits and 1.0 first-year liberal studies credits required for program.
This interdisciplinary course examines the social condition of where and how we live in the context of the Faculty of Design’s primary mandate ‘Design and Humanity’. The significant impact that intelligent and sustainable design can have on people’s lives and the considerable responsibility that the designer has to society are critical factors in shaping behaviour and turning research and perception into action. Strategies for change are channeled into potential project solutions in this course through the research, discussion and debate of current societal issues.
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.
