Course: Dynamic Design: The Human-Centered Design Process and You CHIP

Does design have the power to change the world? How can design solve problems in ways that traditional strategies cannot? This CHIP will focus on the importance and prevalence of design in your everyday life, not only of objects but in everything we do, including social change. The structure of our class will analyze the design process and explore the ways in which the creative process can be an effective problem solving strategy in any field. The goal of our class is to work as a team to create social change through design, and to approach problems with a creative and interdisciplinary understanding. This class is open to all majors who have a desire to collaborate and gain skills, making us effective to solve the problems facing our modern world with creativity.
