Design Literacy
Course responsible, lecturer and coach (100%), Master program in Digital Design, Amsterdam University of Applied Sciences.
The course was about design processes and design approaches, and it was specifically tailored for a highly interdisciplinary group of students coming from diverse backgrounds and work experiences. The course was structured in two parts: first part provided an overview and understanding of the design process, its foundations and components (e.g. design context, synthesis, concept development, etc.) the second part was aimed to be an advanced level, mainly about integrating different theoretical concepts and approaches of HCI, to the design process.
