Fundamentals of Design for Social Innovation
Fall semester
Monday 12:00 – 6:00 (9/12, 9/26, 10/10, 10/24, 11/7, 11/21, 12/5)
Instructors: Marc Rettig, Hannah du Plessis

This course explores the skills needed to be an actor in social innovation, including change models, facilitation, relationships, team building and leaning into uncertainty. Structured as part lab and part discussion, students complete readings, journal assignments and activities related to interaction, dialog, capturing and observing data, writing research and facilitation plans, and developing relationships. At the end of the course, each student facilitates a group discussion with different representatives from part of a system, with the goal of helping the group see the system through multiple vantage points to shift to a collective intention and prototype new solutions.
