Forkunnskapskrav

The course is open to masters students of design, architecture, urbanism and landscape. A mix of students from each discipline will be promoted.

Prerequisite prior knowledge    

Completed foundation education (180 ECTS) in design, architecture, urbanism or landscape architecture.

Recommended prior knowledge        

The course is focused on giving an introduction to how technologies can be explored as materials and tools for creative processes. Prior experience with, and an interest in technology tools and platforms, is recommended. Students are expected to work in groups and individually.

Om emnet

The course has two objectives. Firstly, it aims at informing students of the various tools and techniques involved with technologies that are currently becoming increasingly relevant for design, architecture and urbanism; such as mixed reality (AR, VR, etc), machine learning, 3D scanning, sensors, data and creative code. Secondly, it seeks to engage with these technologies and tools in a critical fashion, through open-ended exploration, play and error. The course aims to expose students to emerging technologies, tools and methodologies, and the content of the course will therefore be updated each year. Through these objectives, the course seeks to teach master students at AHO the various possibilities that lay in emerging technologies that are available for design-processes and which might guide their studio work. As such, the course has a theoretical and practical approach to technology. It involves a series of lectures, as well as individual case work among students.

Students will be expected to create case study related to an existing service, protocol or platform which may be improved/modified through their work.

The themes and exercises of the course will cover:

  • Creative exploration of new or emerging technologies.
  • Making use of technology in creative processes
  • Interdisciplinary exploration of technology as materials and tools for creative processes.
  • Hands-on exercises
  • Larger in depth project for the final week with an individual project from each student or in a group.
Læringsutbytte

Knowledge

With the completed studies the student will have a broader understanding of how emerging technologies effect design-processes, as well as be able to explore a set of technologies for creative purposes.

Skills

With the completed studies the student will be better equipped in utilizing the latent potentials of emerging technology in the setting of product/interaction, architectural, urban or landscape design.

General competence

The student should be able to explain the choice of methods and technologies for realizing their chosen projects, and why. The student should be able to critically reflect on the role of technology in their creative processes

Praktisk organisering og arbeidsmåter

As with other elective courses the course will consist of weekly learning activities, lectures, material exploration and use of available technology resources. Each course day will focus on a student's project work with new assignments given on a bi-weekly basis. Assignments will be presented at the beginning of each following course day, with the occasional supplement of lecture in subjects such as ‘Theory of Mechanical Production’, ‘Research through design’, ‘Technology in a historical perspective’, ´The So-called Smart City´, etc.

During the elective course week at the end of the semester, a larger project is to be conducted and presented for the rest of the group. There are several goals for the one-week projects. Aside from being a chance for students to engage in a particular context of use, a goal for the course is to disseminate on experimental uses of 5g, located based services, and digital zoning.

Om emnet

Prediplomkurset tar sikte på å hjelpe studentene til å utvikle et solid utgangspunkt for diplomprosjektene, som gjør at de kan starte design-/forskningsprosessen med et solid kunnskapgrunnlag, en kritisk holdning og en tydelig plan.

Valg av tema er i utgangspunktet opp til den enkelte student, og retningen er hovedsakelig resultatet av samtaler mellom hver enkelt student og veileder, instituttleder og kurspersonale.

Kurset er organisert i to hovedfaser. Den første fasen fokuserer både på den enkelte students egne ferdigheter og valg av tema for prosjektet. Denne første fasen presenteres og vurderes i form av en presentasjon i løpet av semesteret (etter ca. en måned). Den andre fasen dreier seg om å designe det faktiske prosjektet, med et gjennomførbart prosjektforslag som viktigste og eneste innlevering.

Om emnet

Diplomprosjektet ved Institutt for design er det endelige prosjektet i masterprogrammet. Instituttet har en bred tilnærming til designprofesjonen som omfatter produkter, tjenester, systemer og interaktive opplevelser. Utdanningen knytter sammen estetikk og teknologi, kreativitet og designmetoder, kultur og forskning. Programmet har sine røtter i industridesign, men omfatter i dag også interaksjonsdesign, tjenestedesign og systemorientert design. Dette gjenspeiles i bredden av våre studenters diplomprosjekter og de varierte temaene de tar for seg.

Diplomprosjektet avslutter det femårige masterstudiet i design og gjennomføres i det siste semesteret. Diplomprosjektet iverksettes og organiseres av studentene selv og foregår over en periode på 18 uker. Studentene utvikler og definerer sine egne prosjektbeskrivelser (diplomprogrammet) i et pre-diplomkurs i semesteret før diplomprosjektet. Studentene har en hovedveileder på instituttet mens diplomprosjektet pågår, men kan også innhente ytterligere innspill og veiledning fra hele AHO og også eksternt. Diplomprosjekter gjennomføres vanligvis individuelt, men kan også gjennomføres i grupper.

Diplomprosjektene ved Institutt for design kjennetegnes av variasjon og bredde. Prosjektene iverksettes og utvikles vanligvis av studentene, og de står fritt til å utforske ulike temaer og formater. Dette kan være kreativ utforskning, produktutvikling og teoretiske prosjekter, eller samarbeid med kommersielle selskaper, offentlige tjenester eller forskningsprosjekter. Diplomprosjekter kan også være diskursive designprosjekter som har som mål å reise spørsmål eller utfordre samfunnsmessige eller kulturelle problemstillinger. Diplomprosjektene er ofte “hybrider” som forener ulike metoder og aktører, eller som går på tvers av de ulike designspesialiseringene.

Formålet med diplomprosjektet er sammensatt. Studentene må bruke alt de har lært gjennom utdanningen for å definere og utvikle sitt eget prosjekt. En utfordring her er hvordan prosjektet gjennomføres, hvordan det utvikles, og hvordan det utføres som et designprosjekt. I mastergradsammenheng er diplomprosjektet et relativt omfattende prosjekt som krever at studenten er selvstendig, organisert, strukturert og kreativ. Samtidig er diplomprosjektet en mulighet for studentene til å utforske sin egen identitet som designere, å forske på emner de finner interessante, eller utfordre sine ferdigheter og metoder. Diplomprosjektene bør derfor ses helhetlig som prosjekter hvor studentene får velge sine egne temaer, tilnærminger og prosesser, men hvor utfordringen også består i å organisere og utvikle selve prosjektet. Omfanget av og planen for prosjektet defineres og utvikles både i prosjektbeskrivelsen (diplomprogrammet) og i løpet av prosessen.

Det er viktig å merke seg at en helhetlig vurdering av diplomprosjektene betyr at fokuset bør være på selve prosjektet og ikke hvor nøye det følger den innledende beskrivelsen eller diplomprogrammet.

Læringsutbytte

KUNNSKAPER

Etter endt diplomprosjekt skal studentenes kunnskapsgrunnlag omfatte:

- designmetoder, materialer, teknologier og verktøy

- designhistorie på beslektede felt

- forskningsmetoder, designprosesser

- bruk av brukere og målgrupper i prosjekter

FERDIGHETER
- kunne utvikle designløsninger gjennom kunstnerisk og vitenskapelig forskning, konseptvisualisering, samarbeid og ferdigstillelse av et prosjekt.

- mestre designdrevne metoder, verktøy og uttrykksformer og kunne bruke dette i en kreativ prosess, på en målrettet, profesjonell og eksperimenterende måte.

- kunne reflektere over forholdet mellom innholdet i prosjektet og verden for øvrig.

- kunne presentere både prosess og sluttresultat på en god måte.

GENERELL KOMPETANSE
- kunne formidle verdier og konsepter og inspirere til dialog og tverrfaglige prosesser ved hjelp av en rekke ulike designmetoder og verktøy.

- kunne bekle ulike roller og samarbeide godt med andre yrkesgrupper.

- kunne reflektere over egen prestasjon og egne leveranser og utfordre egne grenser.

- ta ansvar for egen læring og faglig progresjon, og kunne overføre kunnskap til andre felt.

- ta hensyn til aktuelle etiske spørsmål i forbindelse med eget bidrag.

 

Evaluering og kvalitetssikring

Vurdering
Studentene leverer diplomprosjektet i form av samlet produksjon, en presentasjon og en rapport. Produksjonen kan bestå av modeller, prototyper, installasjoner, diagrammer, visualisering, kartlegginger osv. Diplomrapporten bør gi en oversikt over prosjektet, prosessen, mulige resultater (påvirkning) og studentens refleksjoner. Rapporten bør ikke vurderes alene, men som en oversikt over prosjektet. Studentene skal også gi en 20-minutters presentasjon av diplomprosjektet på vurderingsdagen. Sensorene skal vurdere diplomprosjektet som helhet, inkludert studentens samlede produksjon, rapporten og den offentlige presentasjonen.

Vurderingsprosessen
Vurderingen av diplomprosjektene gjøres av et eksternt sensorteam. Sensorteamet representerer de ulike designretningene studentene kan spesialisere seg mot. Alle sensorene er ansvarlige for helhetsvurderingen av alle diplomprosjektene, men hver enkelt sensor får et særlig ansvar for et utvalg av prosjektene. Sensorteamet mottar først diplomrapportene digitalt. Disse rapportene gir en oversikt over diplomprosjektene. Det fysiske resultatet av prosjektene presenteres for sensorene på AHO. På presentasjonsdagen får hver student 20 minutter til å presentere sitt diplomprosjekt. Sensorteamet har deretter totalt 15 minutter til spørsmål, diskusjon og tilbakemelding. Disse 15 minuttene bør også omfatte et kort sammendrag av sensorenes vurdering og generelle tilbakemelding. Dette er et offentlig arrangement for hele skolen, og intensjonen med presentasjonsformatet er å legge til rette for dynamisk diskusjon om diplomprosjektene og interessant respons, så vel som å gjøre det til en læringssituasjon for de andre studentene. Sensorteamets endelige vurdering gis som en skriftlig rapport for hvert prosjekt og leveres en stund etter den offentlige presentasjonsdagen.

Grupperprosjekt får 10 minutter ekstra.

Om emnet

The theme of the Design Management: innovation and entrepreneurship 2022 course is the circular economy and business model innovation. There is a strong drive in society to change towards a circular economy as this may be the answer to develop a far more sustainable society.

For a business the shift means a completely different approach to how they are using resources and what they offer. They will have to redesign the entire organisation, as well as their product and services. Businesses need to rethink how they do business and become far more creative. For architects and designers, this is a great opportunity and may imply new roles and arenas where they can apply their skillset. In order to tap into this they have to obtain insight into business and innovation culture, methods, processes and language.

This course is for architects and designers that would like to enhance their management skills while learning about business modelling and the circular economy. The key takeout from the course is that it is relevant for those that plan to set up a business themselves as well as those that plan to work on strategic aspects of a business. The course is not a ‘how to’ set up your business but will introduce you to some of the fundamental themes when developing a business, as well as engaging with management in 2022. The course has its foundation in design management and is developed to be relevant for both architects and designers. 

In this course the students will be introduced to innovation theories related to design thinking, business modelling and the circular economy. The students will solve specific business challenges in teams and apply their skills in business development. 

Læringsutbytte

Knowledge

Understanding will be gained in what a circular economy is, what the difference between a traditional linear business model and a circular business model is, as well as challenges and opportunities from a business perspective within a circular economy. General knowledge of design and design thinking in a strategy and business context.

Skills

The students will obtain basic business skills of how to conduct research to develop a business, how to engage with a professional client and how to plan and present a business model. Basic tools and templates will be introduced.

General Competence

The students will get a basic understanding of commercialisation and the circular economy, as well as key questions to be aware of when developing a strategic business proposition. The course also engages with the theories and practices on how design skills and design thinking can be used in other areas than developing artefacts in design and architecture.

Praktisk organisering og arbeidsmåter

The course will have a mix of lectures, readings and group work.

During the autumn semester the students will be introduced to two businesses that have started to develop sustainable business practices. These will act as clients for the students. By engaging with these businesses, the student will gain an understanding of what a business model is, and the difference between the linear and circular business models. They will also gain an understanding in how to work with a client. In addition, a couple of guest speakers are invited to go deeper into some of the topics raised.

The first part of the course will be about understanding key concepts such as the circular economy, business model and architects/designers role in developing a business proposition. From various workshops with the two clients the students will learn how to identify opportunities and develop them into business propositions. 

The course culminates in a one-week practical seminar, where the students will develop a business model in groups for their client. They will make a plan for how to conduct the research needed and, in an iterative process, redesign the whole or part of a business model. 

The course will use digital sources such as Miro. If possible, it will be mixed with physical workshops and an off-campus tour.

Om emnet

This semester allows Masters level students to further their knowledge of the key competences of service design within projects together with professional partners and in real service design settings. It aims to reflect on the methodologies related to service design in a real context, where projects are intended to be desirable and viable.

Students will hone their skills and practical knowledge of approaches and methods in service design, focusing on the design for front stage experiences whilst engaging with the complexity and challenges of back stage delivery.

Through the course students will work with one or a series of professional partners (private company and or a public organization), where they will work as professional Service Design consultants. The students will be encouraged to challenge the assumptions of the professional partners in relationship to their (and customers) presumed needs as well as developing critical skills to reframe the design question.

The course’s orientation is essentially practical, it builds on the idea that the best way to develop skills is by means of projects and practical experiences, and by exposing the students to different experiences and feedback from multiple observers, multi-disciplinary actors and project partners.

A third semester Master course (only available for students in their final year). The course has interaction- and service-design as its starting-point, but is open for all design fields. Students are required to document advanced design skills in their chosen specialisation/field through a portfolio.

You upload the portfolio here before 9th May: https://nettskjema.no/a/261065 

Recommended prerequisite knowledge

The course builds on the design skills and methods learnt across the previous Foundation and Master courses. In “Strategic design” students and teachers integrate and push these skills and mindsets to create rich, reflexive projects that address societal issues through design. For students who want to take part in this course a strong sense of curiosity, experimental outlooks, societal engagement and independence is therefore recommended.

Om emnet

This is an advanced Master course about ‘strategic design’ and will introduce the students to how design methods and tools can be used to address societal challenges. Through this course students will learn about theories and methods from the field of strategic design and get practical experience from applying these in design projects. The course is led by Einar Sneve Martinussen, associate professor at AHO, and guest professor Dan Hill, director of strategic design at Vinnova. Over the last decade, Dan Hill has been an important contributor to the field of strategic design and describes the approach as follows:

70 509 Strategic Design takes the core principles of contemporary design practice – user research and ethnography, agile development, iterative prototyping, participation and co-design, stewardship, working across networks, scales and timeframes – and then it points this toolkit at ethical concerns, addressing systemic change within complex systems, and broader societal outcomes.” Dan Hill (2019)

This course has a focus on strategic design in the broader context of societal development. Students will get to apply and expand their skills and mindsets as designers through practical, exploratory projects that work with a range of societal issues - including sustainability, power and equity, policies for urban- and societal-development, innovation and knowledge, welfare and public services, and citizen participation. Alongside these practice-led projects the course will offer a rich selection of theoretical and inspirational lectures and seminars. A particular focus for this year’s course is exploring social infrastructures for everyday life, meaning the structures that enable social life and participation in society. We will re-examine the potential of traditional social infrastructures, such as libraries, schools, public pools, parks or markets. We will also explore and conceptualise a broader understanding of social infrastructure that could include nature, technologies, digital services, social relations and cultural experiences. Through the projects in the course students will use design methods to develop strategic interventions in the world today, as prototypes and pilot-projects, as well as designing future scenarios. The course brings together research-initiatives at AHO with ongoing projects in the public sector. Collaborators and cases for 2022 are not confirmed yet, but will likely include projects dealing with gender and urban planning, innovation in the public sector, and designing for learning and knowledge-sharing in society.

The ‘Strategic design’ course is a part of D-Box, the National Centre for Transforming Public Services (a collaboration between AHO, BI and DOGA), and is organised together with the research-group Digital Urban Living and guest professor Dan Hill. Key partners and collaborators from these research-groups and networks will be involved in the course. This course builds in part on the series of courses organised by Digital Urban Living over the past years, and will continue our exploration of many of the themes addressed in here, including digital society, sharing culture, inclusion, futures and trust.

Praktisk organisering og arbeidsmåter

The course has two core components: a series of thematic seminars that run throughout the semester, and a series of design-projects. The seminars will be run by teachers and external guests and address a series of themes that will inform the development and discussion of the design-projects. The design-projects will be run with external partners and the students are expected to develop, and in part organise, these projects with a high degree of independence and professionality. The majority of the work will be done as pairs or groups, as well as through collaborations across the whole class. Projects typically have multiple presentations throughout in order to allow students to see and comment on each other’s work. Co-learning with and from other students is an important part of the course, and it is encouraged that the majority of the time is spent working in the class studio in order to develop an inspiring and encouraging design-environment.

Recommended prerequisit knowledge

This course builds on the design skills and methods learnt across the previous Master courses in interaction and service design. In “Digital Service Experiences” students and teachers integrate and push these skills and mindsets to create projects that explores the possibilities for designing for digital service experiences across interaction and service design. The course is recommended for students with a strong foundation in interaction or/and service design, that want to develop and extend their skills across these fields.

Om emnet

“Digital Service Experiences” is an advanced Master course in interaction and service design. The course addresses current developments in the design of digital services, with an emphasis on experiential, creative and innovative qualities. The field of digital services is growing, and the design possibilities and challenges in this field are rapidly evolving. As designers we need to interpret and explore this changing landscape, and create our own methods and perspectives on how digital services can deliver valuable and meaningful experiences, empowering users and citizens, and through this expand the tools and mindsets for design as a discipline.

In this course students will develop projects across 3-5 themes and modules. Themes and modules will reflect current research and industry trends and will be updated each year. The modules will be run by different teachers, and involve a range of internal and external experts. The modules can be connected to research projects, external partners or emerging problematics within the field of interaction and service design. The themes will reflect current developments in the fields, and therefore change over the years. Current themes might include: new methods for digital service prototyping, cultural innovation, ‘servitisation’, ritual design and experience, novel techniques and creativity methods in digital design, exploration of technology in an interaction and service context, the ethics and politics of digital services, pop-up service piloting, as well as themes that reflects innovations in the digital service sector.

Students work individually or in small groups depending on the demands of the themes and modules. Each module will be followed by a supervisor and/or a partner. Partners and supervisors depend on the themes that the projects take up. Each module supervisor will be responsible for the students during the module. 

As this is a final year Master course the students are expected to be self-driven and mature within their own practice. Together the students are expected to integrate skills and knowledge across interaction and service design, working either individually, inparallel, or in teams.

The main teaching structure is mentoring on project level and an ongoing evaluation of progress. There is a common structure for milestones and core-deliverables throughout the modules (development of project descriptions and plans, documentation and deliverables, and main presentations). Co-learning is central across the modules and students will be involved in developing research, lectures and materials that will be shared with the whole group.

Læringsutbytte

a. Knowledge:

-  The core knowledge outcome of the course is to integrate and mature the processes and methods learnt in interaction- and service- design across the Master of Design.
