- What are the social and human consequences of the rapidly digitalising society? You create user awareness of this question
- You therefore design creative experiments in the areas of privacy, security, big data, new digital business models, autonomous vehicles, domotics and robotics
- You stimulate social discussion about the use of technology
- To do so, you use your prototypes to explore the boundaries of the possible
About the course // Why design for a digital society?The Minor Design for a Digital Society aims to create awareness and agency for the members in a society that is becoming more digital, less transparent and driven by tech and data.
Based on research and inspirational talks, we need designers to come up with clever tools and meaningful experiences to address opportunities and challenges of our (future) society. Think health care, smart living, technical solutions for the environmental challenges we face, privacy and designing social interactions that help to unite. During this minor you will practice coming up with concepts that address relevant topics. Using research and being able to develop prototypes to validate your concepts with the target audience in this proces is key.
