Do you want to make a difference to something in the world you care about? Would you like some time and space to consider, develop and test your approaches in a safe environment, supported by experts? Following Bruce Mau's 'design thinking' principles, and in collaboration with seasoned designers, business educators, and social entrepreneurs, you will brainstorm, evaluate, then trial potential projects, and in so doing develop your creative and entrepreneurial potential. You will learn that creativity is a skill that can be developed and that it is a critical part of responding positively to challenges. The first part of the unit helps you learn to use creative and enterprise thinking before embarking, in the second part of the unit, on your own project to apply these skills.
