Overview

This online Design Thinking - Creativity for the 21st century module from The Open University UK looks at common principles of design and thinking that lead to creative ideas and solutions in all design disciplines. Within a specially created online design studio, you’ll complete practical activities and interact with tutors and other students, experiencing a completely different way of learning.

What you will study

The module is presented online in four blocks. Each block corresponds to different levels at which design thinking can have an impact on our lives: at the individual, group, social and global level. You’ll have practical activities, skills development and academic coursework to do each week, and the freedom to manage your own learning.

Central to the module is an online virtual design studio, OpenDesignStudio, where you’ll upload your work – using images you’ve created – to discuss with other students and your tutor. Learning to use the expertise of others is a vital part of design thinking and something that is encouraged in the design studio environment. Throughout the module, you’ll be encouraged to engage with the world around you; formulate and solve design problems that are relevant to your own life; and participate in the U101 community of design thinkers.

Programme Structure

The module is presented in four blocks:

  • Design and the individual 
  • Designing for others and with others
