Project management and design
15 ECTS credits
In this course, students plan and carry out a design-oriented project in the research field Geomedia Studies, through a combination of basic project management and design theories and methods. The concept of design has a double meaning in this course and signifies on the one hand project design and on the other hand the creative processes of design-oriented projects (for instance in relation to texts, stills, or moving images). The course introduces and creates an understanding of the different phases of the project work model, from the pilot study and specification of requirements to realisation and follow-up. In addition, students practise selecting, applying, and justifying design methods and design choices in the framework of a real project. The projects start out from current societal issues at the intersection of media, location, and spatial planning. The course offers opportunities for interaction with society at large, such as contact with public or private organisations. Supervision is provided for the duration of the course.
