Experience Design and Innovation (1st semester 20/21)
The world around us is changing rapidly. Everything and everyone is getting more and more connected. In this complex world people are looking for transforming experiences. We design and innovate experiences from an Imagineering perspective.
We need new approaches for new challenges. Imagineering is a new approach. Imagineering is a blend of imagination and engineering. You facilitate creative sessions of stakeholders using their imagination, but you also design and innovate experiences.
