EXP 480: Collaboration Studio

This is a unique type of studio course, pairing interdisciplinary teams of students with community-based organizations or groups to undertake real-world projects. Working in teams, students engage with a local group to study and identify an area of inquiry, to be formulated by students into one or more design problems to be solved. Applying user research methods, a rigorous design, design and production skills, and effective teamwork, the students propose and prototype solutions in partnership with members of the local community.

HCD 421 is a prerequisite for this class.

This course is repeatable for 12.00 credit hours.
