Do you want to better understand the creative processes that drive innovation? Take your ideas and turn them into prototypes? Work with people who think differently than you? Explore and enhance your own creativity? Change the world?
The Innovation Lab is an interdisciplinary design thinking environment within which students leverage their own discipline knowledge to innovate new approaches for solving components of a big picture problem. Students work collaboratively in mixed teams to apply skills of ‘Design Thinking’ and ‘Creative Enterprise’ to develop solutions that catalyse social purpose into the real world of business.
The subject establishes interdisciplinary collaboration with local entrepreneurs and design thinkers, who form part of an embedded mentoring program set up to support the entrepreneurial proposals.
