Before we begin delving into what made the “Innovation, Design, and Prototyping” course all that it was during the Fall 2013 semester, I think it is important to take just a moment to discuss the traits and values of the course…
- Persistent Problem Solving
- Enlightened Simplicity
Rather than provide extensive definitions for each of these values, I will instead leave them to your interpretation, because even though we were provided definitions, the values often meant different things to different people. Since interpretation is a vital part of the Design Process, you’ll just have to interpret them for yourselves 🙂
Below is an image f a Wordle that I created. Wordles are simple images based on text inputted by a user. Wordle software removes articles and adjectives and scans the inputted text. The words appearing the most times appear largest n the image, the ones appearing the least appear the smallest. To generate this Wordle, all I did was type the “Values” portion of the class syllabus into Wordle and let it make the image that appears below. You can see by looking at the image what words best describe the class values.
