Course Description

The impact of digitization in today’s world have influenced how businesses, organization and individual function. As customer behavior becomes more complex, so are the challenges for businesses to keep up with the changes. The best innovation is not the one with the most sophisticated technology but the one with the best design. Design in this context is beyond the aesthetic of an object or an interface. The design also takes into account the users’ physiology and functionality. 


This course aims to provide the students with the theoretical background and practical experience in digital innovation design from a user-centered perspective. There are three main components in this course. First, is the theoretical aspect of innovation and design. Regarding this, the students will be introduced to the theory of innovation and value creation, and design at a high level. The second component (week 5-7) of this course provides students with the experience and practice of design thinking. Students will gain knowledge about the process and tools needed for data collection, data analysis, generation of insights from user data, solution building, and prototyping. The third component is project-based learning on computer-human interaction. Students will be working in groups, under the supervision of the course instructor, in order to produce a tangible prototype of their products from the real-world problem that they have identified.
