TU Delft launches MOOC ‘Delft Design Approach’ — a course in the basics of designing

On Wednesday October 22nd, the faculty of Industrial Design Engineering at the Delft University of Technology will launch her first MOOC ‘Delft Design Approach’.

The Massive Open Online Course (MOOC) is available for participants from around the world and can be found at the edX platform.

The Delft Design Approach will take participants on a design journey from the discovery of a design challenge to concept design and user evaluation. Experts will introduce participants to a number of typical ‘Delft’ models, methods, and tools. The aim is to acquire the knowledge and skills to apply in their own work. Participants will have the chance to compare their performance to that of Delft students and to expert designers. The edX platform offers: video-lectures, exercises, models, methods and tools, peer-reviewing, and benchmarking to stimulate and inspire participants to get to know the Delft approach to designing.

Digital Library of PHD Design Thesis

Featured

FROM:

Heico Wesselius

BBA, MA, PhD Candidate (Economics, The New School for
Social Research)| CSIRO Research Fellow | Design Integration Mapping
Project | Strategic Design | School of Design, Swinburne University of
Technology:

“We seek completed and accepted PhD theses in design, and in closely
related fields such as design anthropology, design thinking, or design
policy.

We welcome full these as PDF attachments or links to digital
collections that allow us to download the full thesis.

We will place these thesis in a digital library that we share with all contributors.

This collection is part of the Commonwealth Science and Industry Research
Organization (CSIRO) Design Capacity Mapping Project that Professor Ken
Friedman and I are undertaking for the Future Manufacturing Flagship
collaborative research program.

We have now collected over 300 PhD theses from around the world.
Collaborators who share documents will be granted access to the full
collection, and to future updates.

We are interested in PhD theses from any country and in any language. At
this time, we seek to expand our holdings of PhD theses from the UK and
North America.

We welcome additional theses from Scandinavia, Europe, India, China and
Korea. Given the growth of PhD programs in design in those regions, we have
fewer theses from these regions than we should have.

We expect to publish a bibliography of the collection in 2016.

Please e-mail full PDF documents as attachments or simply include the
link, handle for download.

THE ROLE OF THE “NEW DESIGNER” IN THE 21 CENTURY AND AHEAD.

WHERE ARE YOU RIGHT NOW?

Why Getting It Wrong Is the Future of Design | WIRED

We have figured out the rules of creating sleek sophistication. We know, more or less, how to get it right. Now, we need a shift in perspective that allows us to move forward. We need a pole right through a horse’s head.

Free Human-Centered Design Course from IDEO

For two years now, IDEO.org has partnered with Acumen to offer a course for those interested in learning about and practicing human-centered design. Join the over 25,000 individuals from 148 countries who have taken the course with us in the past two rounds, and become part of our flourishing community of innovative problem solvers.

Find out more below or visit the course page for additional information. Class begins on October 14th, so register now!

How does the course work? This course is designed with a group-guided learning structure. This means that in order to participate, you’ll need to form a team of between two and six people. Once you have your team, you’ll meet each week to learn the human-centered design process via the readings and workshop materials that we’ve created for you. Along the way, you’ll also tackle a social sector design challenge in your own community.

How much does the course cost? The Course for Human-Centered Design is free!

When does the course start and how long does it last? The course begins on October 14, 2014 and is designed to be conducted over a minimum of seven weeks, ending on December 2, 2014. However, you can also choose to do the course over a longer period of time if a different pace is right for your team.

Do I need to be a designer to sign-up for the course? This is an entry level course and does NOT require any prior design experience.

What if I’ve taken the course already? Human-centered design is all about practice, practice, practice! We encourage you to join us again in honing your human-centered design skills and have a brand new challenge to bring to the table. (Hint: think Amplify!)

What if I’m a more advanced human-centered designer? We’re looking for Course Catalysts to participate in this next round of the course and help our new human-centered designers learn what it’s all about. Learn more about this role and apply.

Who else is taking the course? You’ll join teams from around the world taking this course as part of the leadership classes offered by +Acumen. Last year, many participants found it valuable to take the course with their coworkers and explore how human-centered design can add new perspectives to their work—whether it be applied to nonprofits, social enterprises, educational institutions, or international aid organizations. In addition, you’ll have the opportunity to share your learnings, ask questions, and get to know other course participants from around the world via an online community hosted on NovoEd.

Interested in signing up? Register by October 14th at: bit.ly/hcdcourse.

More information? +Acumen course ambassadors are holding precourse Meetups in cities around the world. Attend a Meetup to learn more and to meet other human-centered designers interested in taking the course.
