This doctoral-level course is organized as an ongoing seminar with hands-on workshops on specific topics and related assignments throughout the year.
After the course, students will
- be familiar with a variety of research methods in design and innovation studies
- understand the research process when studying human subjects and working with case companies
- be able to plan collaborative research processes to investigate design and innovation phenomena
The amount of rewarded study credits depends on the number of sessions attended and homework assignments completed, the full 5 credits can be gathered within one or two years.
Participants are expected to be actively engaging in conducting and publishing doctoral-level research relevant to design and innovation in order to be able to complete in-class assignments. Homework assignments are an elevation of ongoing work, prompting comprehensive reflection, comparison and self awareness. There will be intermittent check-ins with status updates, and at the end of semester participants submit a portfolio of all work done to receive the credits.
Please contact Teo Keipi, Floris van der Marel or Tua Björklund if you have any questions, or would like to take part in the course (joining can happen at any time throughout the year).
