DESINST 215: The Design of Data

Our world is increasingly complex and laden with many forms of measurable data. Infographics abound, but whether explicit or not, the stories they tell are all designed. In this hands-on course, students will learn to use mapping and design techniques to sort and synthesize data, unlock insights and communicate information. Students will practice finding insight from both qualitative and quantitative information. Take this course if you are interested in learning how to navigate through and create for the complicated intersection of data and design. This class is for students of all experience levels.nAdmission by application. See dschool.stanford.edu/classes for more information.

DESINST 245: Redesigning Post-Disaster Finance

Unfortunately, natural disaster scenarios are becoming annual and severe due to climate change, urbanization and legacy building practices and standards. When disaster responders leave affected communities, banks, insurance companies and government agencies are challenged to fund the rebuilding.nnHow might we bring human-centered design to the post-disaster loan and insurance processes?nnIn this class, you will interview bankers, insurers and their bank regulators, borrowers, past disaster victims, emergency responders and others to visually map post-disaster process from multiple points-of-view, with the goal of revealing simpler and more adaptive design opportunities.Then you will work together to produce an immersive storytelling experience for all stakeholders to see how they might take a more human-centered approach to the post-disaster banking and insurance processes, where the stories of rebuilt community and household can be better told, shared and funded faster.nnAdmission by application.

Emerging technologies pose great potential for the advancement of society, but they are increasingly replicating real-world structural inequities. There is an urgent need to prioritize equity and ethics as a prerequisite for designing emerging technologies to ensure inclusion. And we know that everyone comes to design with their own unique experiences and identities that ultimately shape what we create in the world. In this course we will explore how identities, biases and experiences show up in our design work by collaborating with a project partner to create K12 tools which support young people and educators create with emerging technologies. Students will work in interdisciplinary teams and leave this course with design abilities and an improved understanding of how to create with emerging technologies. Admission by application.

DESINST 366: Creative Gym: A Design Thinking Skills Studio

Build your creative confidence and sharpen your design thinking skills. Train your intuition and expand the design context from which you operate every day. This experimental studio will introduce d.school students to fast- paced experiential exercises that lay the mental and physical foundation for a potent bias toward action, and a wider knowledge of the personal skills that expert design thinkers utilize in all phases of their process. Recent research based on this course curriculum show that performing these class activities will expand your creative capacity in statistically significant ways.

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.
