This course explores classic texts on entrepreneurship and innovation, while also considering the role of the artist and design as an agent of change, and the nature and promise of technology in the creation of our possible future(s). Using a design thinking approach that stresses participation, iteration, and integration, the course lectures, readings, discussions, exercises, and projects will address topics like users, process, place, diffusion, and intellectual property along with tools like brainstorming, prototyping, scenario planning, and positioning. By the end of the course, students will be familiar with the fundamental tools needed to innovate in any context. Note: PSDS 3000 and 3001 must be taken together in order to qualify for credit.
