ARTSINST 160: The Changing Arts Ecosystem: Entrepreneurial Approaches for Artists and Arts Organizations (ARTSINST 360)

(Graduate students should enroll in ARTSINST 360.) This course looks at opportunities created by a rapidly changing art world. Artists, arts leaders, and creative entrepreneurs are taking advantage of new platforms and models for making art and for bringing art to new audiences. The course will feature guest speakers who are developing new ways to engage audiences, create powerful collaborations, and identify new funding sources for artistic activity. While drawing upon speakers and examples in the visual arts, this course will introduce methods for understanding and engaging with audiences and funders that are applicable to all types of art. Students will also have the opportunity to investigate collaborative models of their own choosing and will be encouraged to design completely new models--either for realizing an individual art project or for establishing an arts organization. Students will be taught methods for investigating the needs, motivations and resources of audiences/funders. Grading will be based on class participation, which will be supported by submitting periodic reflections and questions, and one project presentation. The course is available to advanced undergraduate students and graduate students and will be offered pass/fail.

DESINST 310: Negotiation by Design: Applied Design Thinking for Negotiators

Where many stakeholders are working within a complex scenario, the skilled negotiator is comfortable with the inherent ambiguity, at once nimble and careful in responding to new information and changing positions. In this advanced negotiation course, we will crack open some of the fundamental negotiation principles and show you how, where and why design thinking can add unique value to your negotiation skills and outcomes. Mapping and designing the structure and process of your negotiation; understanding tools to gain empathy for the stakeholders involved in the negotiation; learning different styles of negotiation; practicing spontaneity, adaptability and presence in the moment; team brainstorming in preparation, and team dynamics in the execution of a negotiation. You will work through exercises that isolate these skills and then apply them in simulated negotiations, at least one in every class session, to improve your confidence and competence as a negotiator. You and your teammates will then bring them all to bear in a capstone, multi-party, multi-issue negotiation simulation. If you have already taken a basic negotiation course, or have demonstrable experience, we invite you to apply. No previous design thinking experience is required, though certainly useful.nAdmission by application. See dschool.stanford.edu/classesn for more information.

DESINST 423: Design for Healthy Behavior Change

In the U.S., 75% of medical expenditures are for illnesses that are predominantly lifestyle related such as type 2 diabetes, arthritis and heart disease. It has been shown as people modify their lifestyles with healthier habits, medical problems can be reduced or avoided and a healthier and happier life achieved. The class employs design thinking in teams while working directly with volunteers in the community to help them achieve their health goals. There is an individual project and a team project each with multiple milestones. Learn and experience the design thinking process through interactions and design working within student teams and working directly with patient-volunteers from the practice of Drs. Ann Lindsay and Alan Glaseroff from the Stanford Coordinated Care Clinic. Admission by application. See dschool.stanford.edu/classes for more information.
