Interprofessional Project by Design

The course is an immersive, action-oriented, dynamic learning experience guided by a team of instructors from the fields of design, engineering, business, law, architecture, psychology, and social sciences. The course introduces students to the interprofessional project concept and its underlying body of knowledge by incorporating hands-on, small group, user-centered design projects informed by instructor-lead discussions and guest speakers; stimulating and facilitating project idea development that involves a collaborative innovation process; and developing an understanding of the socio-economic context of themed clusters of workplace project possibilities (e.g., venture development, service learning, process improvement, sustainability, and research).
