The purpose of the course is to learn ?creativity and innovation management?, i.e. to help students to turn creative ideas into useful cultural and /or media products. With the help of theory, meetings and lectures students are guided to develop sustainable media products.


Efter avklarad kurs förväntas den studerande vara förmögen att utveckla koncept och leda medie innovations processer.


This is an intensive course that introduces the concepts of innovation and human-centered design to those working towards experimentation, artistic innovation and social change. Over the duration of course, you collaborate in design teams to complete online and offline coursework. Participants are encouraged to test their imaginative limits and broaden their horizons through research. This is done by testing and enacting different experiments and analysing their results. During the course you present - a prototype, -a project plan on how and in what context you intend to develop the prototype into an innovation In addition to this you test your prototype in distributed innovation environment (such as a crowdsourced platform or event "Hackathon) + submit a written analysis and refekction on this experience. The aim of the course is that you become a more innovative problem solver by building up your prototyping, experimentation and communication skills. You also learn how to do research online with nethnographic method. The Course structure is based on the innovation process as described in The Fieldguide to Human centered Design.

To pass the course the student should show an understanding of the literature and pass assignments 'Prototype' and Nethnography. To reach a grade 4-5 the student should show that she can apply the theory and evaluate his/her learning: assignment 'Analysis'. Required reading: Design Kit: The Field Guide to Human-Centered Design. McAfee, A. & Brynjolfsson, E., 2017. Machine, Platform, Crowd: Harnessing our Digital Future. London: W.W. Norton & Company. Assesment criteria We assess the prototypes and the assignment "Analysis + reflection'. The prototypes are measured against these criteria. 1. Social and environmental benefit ? how does your design benefit society and/or the environment?  2. Research and insights ? how did you investigate this issue? What were your key insights?  3. Design thinking ? how did your research and insights inform your solution? How did you develop, test, iterate and refine your concept? Demonstrate the journey you?ve been through to the end result  4. Magic ? we are looking for a bit of ?magic? ? a surprising solution that delights
