TU 124.7400 Co-Design in Service Innovation (January, 2014 – March, 2014)
Aalto University Doctoral Seminar 5–8 ECTS
Design has risen as a new approach for the conception of services and products. But what is it exactly that design brings to the fore and what can be learned from it? How important are the design, co-design, participatory design and co-creation approaches for developing successful services and what are their differences? How much new and how much fad is there? This doctoral seminar aims to answer these questions.
The seminar is focusing on the use of co-design and co-creation approaches and methodologies for the development of innovative services. It is organized and financed by the Aalto Service Factory within the thematic group “Service Design With and For Citizens”. The course is aimed at Aalto doctoral students across all schools and disciplines.
The course is interdisciplinary and will use literature and examples from Design, Engineering, Marketing and Service Science, and could extend to Architecture and Urban Design. The format of the seminar is extremely interactive and participants will be required to contribute to the development of knowledge in this emergent field that encompasses many perspectives, among others co-design, participatory design, service innovation, service marketing and process development.
