In January 2017, h2i institute initiate the 1st edition of the INNOVATION CENTERED DESIGN COURSE to LATAM at our new Headquarters in Medellín, Colombia.The master, which has been given in Madrid, Spain, since 2010, length 15 weeks in which students drives their learning journey though the development of a real Project.
The course consists on 584 hours of training, of which 35% are theoretical content dedicated to knowledge and methodology, and 65% to the development of an innovation project carried out in teams and supervised by professionals and mentors from school .
We selected 24 professionals, from anywhere in the world and from any professional sector, who wants to train in new methodologies to carry out projects with a high degree of uncertainty. All students enjoy a grant of 100% of the registration fee thanks to our sponsors.
“Join the first h2i Innovation master in Latin America”
The course develops innovative learning techniques and tools that come from four disciplines:
Throughout the master students follow the main line of h2i: creativity. This process is experienced from two viewpoints. The first is a methodology based on the application of creative problem solving (Creative Problem Solving) following Dr. Min Basadur. The second view is related to the stimulation of creativity through body movements, detecting mental blocks and momentum of personal skills.
Through the application of research techniques, participants learn to listen to others, to estrange themselves and to build constructions of reality. This part of investigation for design (Design research), consists of a dual approach: the generative social research which comprises disciplines as ethnography, social psychology or micro-sociology. And next to it, it is the Participatory research or co-creation whose great advantage is that let´s create artifacts to made tangible the users problems solving.
Once generated an understanding of the problem to be solved, based on the research findings, the best design decisions should be adopted, identifying the contexts in which add value. In these areas sketches are designed and artifacts are built which allow a wider comprehension of the idea and a solution approach. The areas of Strategic Design, Prototyping and Service Design provide tools to define the proposals. Through these constructions, teams can determine the direction of its iterations, identifying areas for improvement. In addition, models and built artifacts helps to generate ideas, dismissing the prejudice that innovation is a linear process. The aim is to create a final proposal properly defined to start working on technical and economic feasibility.
Learning how to evaluate the viability of the idea and plan strategies for its development and market release. The idea is completed building its business model and implementation, providing a reflection on the value generated and the costs associated to the designed proposals. In this last part of the process, solutions are treated from the business design discipline using empathy maps, Business Model Canvas and creating value propositions with the needs detected on the research phase as its core idea. Validation of the proposal models experimentally it is essential to reduce uncertainty and deliver meaningful proposals and potential for success in the market.
All our teachers are active professionals, experts in their teaching areas, who practice daily tools and content taught in the course.
