CDES 4101 - Community-Based Design II

Credits: 3

Prerequisite(s): CDES 4100 with “C-” or better; or permission of department. Student must supply a suitable laptop computer.

Description: This course builds upon the skills and knowledge acquired in CDES 4100 Community-Based Design I. Focusing on design interventions that address underserved or marginalized audiences, this course brings real-world design problems into the classroom studio. Students work in teams as problem-seekers, identifying design deficiencies that can be the motivation for semester-long research, development, and actual implementation. Students demonstrate an evolving sophistication in solving triple bottom line issues through social, environmental and economic filters. Students are required to work in a highly inclusive manner with project participants, peers and members of the community, demonstrating sensitivity to a range of human-centered design issues. This is an integrated media course. (Service Learning)
