In this unit students will learn how to engage stakeholders through design interventions: a core component of being a Design Innovation Catalyst. Through a multi-staged approach, students will learn about possible approaches for such design interventions (e.g. workshops and design sprints). Students will explore how to structure a design intervention, and discover some effective methods for delivering and facilitating interventions. Students will build knowledge and skills for visually and verbally communicating content to an audience. In addition, students will develop their ability to identify key methods to facilitate a group's discussion with the objective of sharing knowledge, building concepts and reaching common outcomes. The unit will detail the why, who, when, and how of design interventions. Students will be expected to facilitate a design intervention (such as a workshop) as part of the unit of study.
