COURSE DESCRIPTION

This course teaches design tactics and strategies for effectively distributing and brokering knowledge across cross-disciplinary organizations. The goal of this class is for students to be able to:

  • Strategically plan when and how to deploy design capabilities in large-scale co-creation projects

  • Facilitate complex knowledge brokering and ideation activities

  • Know how to respond and adjust to new developments in open-ended processes of discovery and innovation

  • Improve productivity in multi-disciplinary team dynamics

  • Effectively manage ideation flows when knowledge is distribute across large networks of individuals and organizations

ASSIGNMENT  OVERVIEW

Students were broken into groups of three to design and lead a 30 minute workshop around the future of manufacturing. Each workshop was one of the 7 "ideation lenses" of knowledge brokering. My team's lens was "Embedding." 

WORKSHOP ANALYSIS

After designing and conducting 30 minute workshop with my team, I built the below document to evaluate the design of the workshop and how successfully the activities facilitated the desired outcome of embedding complexity to effectively design prototype-able interventions.

WORKSHOP REDESIGN

Taking into consideration the learnings from the evaluation, I redesigned the workshop to address the identified issues and drive more meaningful outcomes. I particularly focused on redesigning the end of the workshop by introducing a critique activity to better "unpack" the embedded concepts.
