Abstract

A common feature of today's societal challenges lies in their complexity. Society's ability to address these problems depends on education programmes developing in their graduates competencies and capabilities needed to drive innovation in unanticipated situations. Key challenges lie in developing creativity and innovation skills in students and in supporting them learning to apply these skills to real-world problems that are typically complex and unpredictable. This paper builds on experiences from a week long workshop, "Innovation Week", that is delivered as a core and distinctive part of a multi-disciplinary undergraduate programme in Product Design. Through a condensed, one hour, version of Innovation Week, we also explore ways in which design and visual thinking might be integrated into educational curricula with a view to identifying requirements for future developments in both educational and professional practices.
