Content
This course centers around a challenge-based project assignment with regional stakeholders. It is partly carried out with the group as a whole, and partly in small groups. This project builds on the outcomes of the Societal Leadership course. You further develop design and analysis skills and learn new methods for responsible futuring and prototyping. Activating workshops and inspiring guest-lectures will support the project.
The final product is an experiential prototype of a future reality, made specific for the local problem context. The assessment of this product, its justification and its presentation, will be carried by a broad team of teachers and external stakeholders.
