Designing for Systemic Change
Designing for Systemic Change

Many societal challenges require a systemic approach towards change. An approach where multiple stakeholders together create insight in the challenge at hand, and explore possible directions for systemic change. This session explores the concept of Designing for Systemic Change, including: what is it, how do we approach it, and what are the challenges we face?

People Place Process: A self-reflection tool to become a professional in design thinking, based on pedagogical action research
People Place Process: A self-reflection tool to become a professional in design thinking, based on pedagogical action research

The nature of design thinking projects requires a great capacity to solve situated-inquiry problems (versus technical problem solving – Schön). Design thinking requires practitioners to become reflective professionals. This piece of research provides a protocol and tools to guide their journey of self-reflection.
