Disruptive Design: Research and Insights

SIG-5350
Fall semester
Tuesday 6:00-9:00
Instructor: Siri Betts-Sonstegard

Issues at the heart of Social Innovation, such as poverty, violence, civil rights, access to infrastructure and services, may not be acute or even present where we live, study and work. In this class, you will learn how to approach design for the needs and belief systems of others, especially marginalized communities whose lives, practices and experiences may be unfamiliar or contrary to your own. You will apply techniques to understand context, immerse yourself in communities, analyses complex relationships and leverage community members for self-driven projects. Over the first semester, students will build a foundation of methods and approaches which they can apply to parallel and future work.
