We explore approaches to integrating sustainability into decision making, and tools such as life cycle thinking, to help understand environmental and social impact.
Disruptive Design | Part 2 Systems Thinking
Develop methods and approaches needed to identify and map relationships and system dynamics. Explore major systems at play: social, industrial and ecological. See how they play out in a variety of different problem arenas.
Disruptive Design | Part 3 Making Change
Explore the contemporary theories of how change happens, and the modes in which one can intervene in change. Learn how to critically evaluate the ways change happens on a macro and micro level.
Disruptive Design | Part 4 Research Strategies
Critically investigate approaches to conducting research and collecting information for greater insight. We learn that research is experimentation in action. Apply action research and responsive feedback loops to develop creative solutions.
Disruptive Design | Part 5 Gamification & Game Theory
Unpack the modes in which play and game theory affect and motivate action. Look at the bigger picture of games and gamification and ways in they can be used to effect change, unpacking intrinsic motivators such as pleasure, success and challenge.
Disruptive Design | Part 6 Cognitive Science & Biases
Investigate the latest in cognitive sciences, neurochemical influences, body connections, cognitive biases and social influencers. Learn how cognitive experiences and biases influence perceptions and actions.
Disruptive Design | Part 7 Ethics & Empathy
Explore the physiological and social experiences of empathy, and how one can employ empathetic approaches to design. The critical role of ethics in the decision making and action is also explored.
Disruptive Design | Part 8 Language, Influence & Effect
Explore systems of language, the history of framing, moral panics and discourse, semantics and semiotics. Gain an understanding of the social construction of influential communication, and how to apply tactics to shift behaviors towards sustainable practices.
Disruptive Design | Part 9 Systems Interventions
The synthesis of all the components come together. Here we identify and build systems interventions, and design the vehicles in which these interventions can exist. Discover how to use a Theory of Change to plan out tactical interventions.
Disruptive Design | Part 10 Ideation and Prototyping
Learn our rules of ideation and rapid creative development. Test ways of translating ideas into outcomes through prototyping in a variety of forms and formats.
Disruptive Design | Part 11 Sustainable Design & Production
Implement eco-design and sustainable production practices in your work. Think through production and project evolution to build more sustainable solutions into the design of products, systems and services.
Disruptive Design | Part 12 Project Activation and Amplification
Implementation, amplification and activation. Explore ways of putting things into the world, considering how they may evolve and develop contingency plans that allow for flexible, rapid adaptation.
