The ‘Design Theory and Methodology’ module, taught by Prof. Panayiotis Zaphiris and Andreas Papallas, is offered fully online in English and its current cohort is multi-disciplinary and international coming from more than 25 different countries. The module aims to help students gain a deeper understanding of design as a problem-solving activity in different contexts.
In 2017, the students focused on designing a creative design toolkit and implementing it in generative sessions with stakeholders aiming to foster the inclusion of older people into the digital society. In the last phase of the project, the students were required to join in from around the world to present their work live for feedback and peer review.
