This workshop will take a scaffolded, design-thinking approach to initiating knowledge co-production partnerships among students, staff, alumni, industry and community. Participants will move through the ‘empathising’ and ‘defining’ phases of partnership ideation together, and may engage in early prototyping activities. The workshop is enriched if multiple stakeholders (academic and professional staff, alumni, industry) from an organisational area can attend.
