This course presents a prac­ti­cal frame­work and tools to help design­ers accu­rately frame design prob­lems. A proper prob­lem frame addresses root causes, not just symp­toms of the prob­lem, in rela­tion to the umbrella wicked prob­lem. This course intro­duces grad­u­ate can­di­dates in the MDes pro­gram to a range of pro­to­typ­ing meth­ods — from paper to inter­ac­tive pro­to­types. It approaches pro­to­typ­ing as form-find­ing, think­ing-through-mak­ing and analysis.
