Fall 2021

Taught By: Elliott Montgomery

Section: G

CRN: 12420

Credits: 3

This course builds upon the Research and Development Methods course by offering students the opportunity to experiment with various approaches to the integration of design and research methodologies. In a semester-long project that spans planning, research, implementation and testing, students will experience the unfolding of the design process, with special attention given to the use of iteration and prototyping as a means to generate knowledge and/or innovative solutions. Students gain a theoretical as well as a practical understanding of how to organize and optimize the design process as well as the critical skills to reflect on the design process and its outcomes.

The overall theme of this section is Design Futures. Students will learn methods for researching and structuring future scenarios, and will apply these methods in conjunction with conventional design research methods. In this course, we’ll discuss futures as powerful narratives of change that have the potential to shape discourse, build consensus and support strategic planning.

CRN: 3005

This course builds upon the Research and Development Methods course by offering students the opportunity to experiment with various approaches to the integration of design and research methodologies. In a semester-long project that spans planning, research, implementation and testing, students will experience the unfolding of the design process, with special attention given to the use of iteration and prototyping as a means to generate knowledge and/or innovative solutions. Students gain a theoretical as well as a practical understanding of how to organize and optimize the design process as well as the critical skills to reflect on the design process and its outcomes. The overall theme of this section is The Politics of Helping. As designers increasingly turn their efforts to altering conditions for the oppressed, stubborn questions arise around the ethics of engagement. In this section we will critically explore the issues, inequities, ineffectualness, and injury related to and resulting from practices generally described as community engagement, social impact, philanthropy, and helping. Projects in this section will consider how designers might develop practices that foster solidarity and actively dismantle oppressive structures and systems.

The overall theme in this section is Healing and Learning and the ways they integrate with one another. How does the healing process relate to learning and progressive growth? Possible pathways may include healing and learning in public health, personal development, and how they are presented in general and in social media. Projects in this section may also use these terms as metaphors to be interpreted and researched in other contexts.
