COLB12-120: Design: Process, Methods and Mindsets


This subject challenges students to understand and use processes and models at the core of design thinking. Students are given problems that challenge even the greatest organisations and minds both in and out of business, often referred to as wicked problems. Students will demonstrate design thinking processes by framing a problem and choosing from a set of transdisciplinary tools and strategies, such as abductive reasoning, spatial modelling, ideation, prototyping and implementation, to deliver innovative solutions. Students who successfully complete this subject will have the knowledge and skills to use ‘design thinking’ as professionals, in teams and for society.
