From now on, i’m involved in the Coten project, an online design endeavor to think about higher education. So far the participation is good, there are weekly speakers who give a video. A main thread discusses that, but there are also other threads, limited to teams, and concerning little activities also given weekly. The bulk of the project is accessible to everyone, and from there also the guest lectures are interesting.
It is very exhausting at times to read all the contributions, but it is a great insight at how creative professionals handle huge issues, with a design thinking approach. The focus is on Service Design methods and references, which differs from Interaction Design only by the type of outcome usually expected: instead of a particular multimedia product, it deals with services. An immaterial service from humans to other humans.
