Event description

Description

This session explores the role and value of making and breaking as part of the design thinking process. Design thinking has gone through many rollercoaster rides in the past few years. It has been loved, it has been condemned. It has been reduced to a buzzword. It has been described as saviour and disruptor with businesses embracing design thinking as a method for innovation.

Design thinking may seem like a wild adolescent, but as a matter of fact, it has been with us for over half a century. At the University of Sydney we have been teaching design thinking for 15 years as part of our programs on interaction and digital design. This session provides an opportunity to take a 2-hour glimpse into the world of design thinking.

In response to the Sydney Design theme, the session specifically focuses on the role of making and breaking, drawing on the concept of prototyping in design thinking.

The session will include short talks and hands-on activities, using exercises from a Design Thinking toolkit developed at the University of Sydney. It is open to anyone, who would like to learn more about design thinking and find out what all the buzz is about by actually engaging in design thinking activities.
