Winter School on design science and design thinking in IS, organised by CUSO at Ovronnaz from January 12 to 16th, 2015, with Prof. Jean-Henry Morin, University of Geneva
The objective of this course is to offer PhD students in information systems (IS) and computer science (CS) the methodological foundation of design science research and design thinking. Combining theoretical, hands-on sessions and invited lectures, this course will provide PhD candidates with the required methodological foundation for their research.
The course will address design science from various viewpoints: frameworks, paradigms, theory, processes, patterns, evaluation, ideation and rationale. The design techniques will be used in creative ideation workshops, scientific literature reading and reviewing, writing research proposals, drawing scientific posters and presenting oral slideshows. The course is structured around two main aspects of design:
- Design Science (Vaishnavi and Kuechler, 2008) as the methodological foundation of research in IS and CS
- Design Thinking (Brown, 2008) as the creative foundation for innovation and design.
