Over five weeks, participants will engage in activities and experiences that interface with their professional settings or future-oriented aspirations. As well as interacting in design activities and sharing across professions during the weekly online Zoom sessions, you will be encouraged to explore and trial design practices, perspectives, approaches and techniques imaginatively with work colleagues or people in your life.
Areas of exploration in this course include:
- Design methods and service design methodology
- Creative design toolkits and inquiry approaches
- Bricolage approaches to designing
- Provotyping and prototyping methods
- Recognising individual and collective learning in operation.

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.
