Introduction to Project Design

DDL 190
Description: This course provides a project design space for students enrolled in the Degree Design Lab Program to develop and explore a sustained interdisciplinary question through a collaborative problem or project. While the collective project may be pre-determined, students will be challenged to identify how their multiple professional foci OR other compelling passions might contribute. Faculty will help students to identify the project, facilitate implementation, ensure appropriate breadth and depth of subject matter, and encourage awareness of how the experience can be used to build and demonstrate competency. Students will develop their own questions and determine their own research path for the liberal learning that will help them achieve their goals. Students will actively share ideas, engage in ongoing discussions, provide feedback, and refine work accordingly. This course is designed with an eye towards increasing independence and sophistication, and will allow students at different points in their process and with different perspectives to contribute to each other's work.
