A mix on theory and a hands-on approach to service design. The course will allow the students to discuss and apply design methods and a broad set of theory in order to both design and evaluate services. The course is case based, meaning the students are expected to develop and showcase distinct projects throughout the semester in order to deepen their knowledge of the discipline. A range of theoretical concepts will be introduced and the student is expected to use and reflect on the presented theory during class and in their project cases.
12,5 weeks of teaching consisting of lectures, exercises, project work and supervision. It is expected that the students participate actively in the classes, projects and group work carried out throughout the course. The course also has a blog, which is used as a place for discussion and opportunity for sharing relevant content related to the class.
|Obligatoriske aktivititer:||There will be two mandatory group hand-ins. The two hand-ins will report on two projects carried out by the students during the semester.
The written assignments (i.e. the formal hand-ins) will be 5-6 pages following a template provided by the teacher. The students are also requested to give a brief presentation during class related to each of their two projects. The two mandatory hand-ins will provide input for the final oral course exam.
