Solid technical grounding and acquaintance with basic economics and business concepts will both be helpful. Rocky Mountain Institute (RMI) will design a series of lectures, exercises, and interactive activities synthesizing integrative design principles. Students will be introduced to Factor 10 Engineering, the approach for optimizing the whole system for multiple benefits. Students will work closely and interactively with RMI staff including Amory Lovins, cofounder and Chief Scientist of Rocky Mountain Institute (RMI). Exercises will illuminate challenges RMI has faced and solutions it has created in real-world design. Students will explore clean-sheet solutions that meet end-use demands and optimize whole-system resource efficiency, often with expanding rather than diminishing returns to investments, i.e. making big savings cheaper than small ones. Students will meet as a class once during winter quarter to discuss preparation and spring break logistics. Students must pay for their own travel to and from Basalt, CO (~$400). Lodging and food will be provided during the course. Students must apply - instructor approval required. All backgrounds and disciplines, both undergraduate and graduate, are welcome to apply. Prerequisite - completion of one of the following courses or their equivalent is required: CEE 107A/207A/ Earthsys 103, CEE 107S/ CEE 207S, CEE 176A, CEE 176B.

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 235: PORTFOLIOS ARE FOR EVERYONE

Whether you are a scientist, a historian, a medical student, a journalist, an entrepreneur, or a designer, in the near future you will find yourself telling your story to potential collaborators, funders, employers, and others. You can no longer rely on a resumé or a transcript to show a comprehensive range of your skills and experiences. As more work and workplaces become project-based, these formats fall short of revealing the potential you have. This class will help you create a portfolio¿in whatever form is relevant to your field¿that communicates your value and your values to prospective collaborators or employers. Students from all disciplines are encouraged to apply. This class will be most useful to students who have a future path in mind, regardless of when that will begin. Application required, 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.

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.
