Foresight Studio 1
This studio course will introduce foresight methods in the development of strategic proposals in the private, public, voluntary or for-benefit sector. Working in teams, students will identify an issue in a specific sector and will begin their exploration and research in a divergent process of signal discovery through methods such as environmental scanning, new technology research, user research, field study, or stakeholder workshops. This phase of work frames the problem. In a convergent process, students will apply methodologies, which include medium- to long-range scenario planning and technology adoption modelling to develop creative insights and implications for action. This is part one a course run between the fall and winter terms. Students with credit in SFIN-6B11 may not take this course for credit.
