VSB 3900-H01 Innovation and Design Practicum

Scott Newbert
TR 1:00-2:15

A new course launched last fall, this course explores the art of “design,” a creative approach to problem-solving used by decision-makers at the world’s most innovative organizations (i.e., Google, Apple). This course will expand the students’ understanding of design through various readings and discussion as well as a hands-on project that will enable students to integrate and apply design concepts, methods, and techniques to real-world problems. Though offered out of VSB, due to the diversity of perspectives and skills design projects demand, the course is open to students from all colleges and departments across the university. For VSB students considering getting the VSB Honors degree, this course is part of the required 3-course VSB Honors core.
