  • Great (Big D) design is hard to define, easy to identify
  • Singapore has made design a priority
  • Designing is not easy. Teaching design is not easy. Requires HOTS
  • Technology can be fun (weird, useless)
  • Many (most?) hi-tech products fail
  • Because technology is the focus, not humans
  • Big D design balances technology and people
  • Great products push the limits both in tech+humans
  • And it doesn’t need to be “shiny”
  • But again, it’s not easy: demands disrupting traditional boundaries
  • Brief: design a next-gen science museum exhibit.

  • Mental/Cultural Switch• You are not told what to do or how to do it• No textbooks with answers• No recipes (but there is a structure)• Integrate and apply what you learn• High uncertainty, high ambiguity• High diversity of skills, tools, concepts• Manage your design/learning process• No right/wrong answers• Teachers expect more from you• Design-driven, not grade-driven• Fail early, fail fast, fail often (and learn)
  • Mental/Cultural Switch• “How many drawings/concepts/prototypes?”• “Is my proposed solution ok?”• “Checklist: I did x, y, and z”• “Subject x is not related to design”• “You must tell me what to do!”• “You are asking for too much, I need to sleep”• “What do I do next?”• “We did what you asked for”• “I only want good grades, forget the learning”• “Students must never fail”• “My design has x, y and z features”
