This microcredential engages you in a range of design provocations from different fields and stakeholders to explore design methods, futures thinking approaches and prototyping techniques. You will critically examine and trial these design ideas while creating a series of learning prototypes.
You will then develop prototypes of a learning experience, workshop or program. Using a practice-based prototype and after putting forward an initiative proposal, you will explore how a small-scale, safe-to-fail experiment could both be tested in your professional practice and insights gained as a result. In that process, you will generate parameters and principles shaping the design of your initiative.
Using your initiative proposal, you question how to gauge a design’s success and shape future design iterations. You will also explore how these insights about designing for learning enable further collaboration within your team or organisation and generate new inquiry questions.
With its focus on learning-integrated work, this practice-based microcredential supports participants to trial design ideas, methods, techniques and strategies within their own professional setting or other situation.
This microcredential has been designed to:
By doing this microcredential, you will develop design skills needed to lead the development of new learning initiatives.

This course is designed to provide you with self-paced, creative, online experiences that engage you with key ideas and practices associated with designing and prototyping, using transdisciplinary provocations to spark imaginative possibilities.
Participants will explore design methods, approaches, perspectives and knowledge from different fields and trial them in their professional practice or in other situations. The relevance and worth of these ideas will be tested, and participants will be tasked with generating a design proposal to enact in their professional setting. The weekly Zoom sessions provide you with rich opportunities to also learn from other people from different professional backgrounds.
The learning and assessments are personalised to be directly related to participant’s practical on-the-job and day-to-day experiences. As part of the assessment process, participants are mentored individually, enabling them to expand their ideas in forward-looking and powerful ways. This microcredential will challenge you to be a design thinker for change.
Upon successful completion of this microcredential, participants should be able to:
Participants will be assessed individually across the following two tasks during the course:
Task 1: Design provocations and insights (weight: 30%)
Task 2: Transdisciplinary designing, provotyping and prototyping: An initiative proposal (weight: 70%)
Participants must complete all assessments and achieve at least 50% of the course’s total marks.
