About the Topics, Their 2067
Design Thinking is an innovative way of problem solving. We apply critical thinking as the fundamental approach that raises assumptions, identifies problems, defines core issues, generates solutions and iterates solutions. Rather than pursuing heavy thinking and complete planning, we focus on trial-and-error solutions that feature speed, low cost and multiple approaches. There is no perfect solution but optimal trade-offs. Meanwhile, we guide students to do multidisciplinary cooperation and efficient communication through one-on-one tutoring.
Aiming at launching potential startup projects, this course incorporates a number of research techniques, including desk research, opinion-surveys, interviews, on-site observation, user-persona, data analysis, prototyping, user-test, market forecast, etc.. We offer a novel way for science students to think and solve problems in their research work. Design thinking provides an introductory basis for other SEM courses.
