Date of Issue2014
School of Art, Design and Media
In an increasingly globalized and knowledge-based economy, graduates with creative minds and able to collaborate will have a clear competitive edge over their peers. This paper examines the pedagogy used in an elective course aimed to raise the creative design literacy of nondesign students who were mostly Business students. Students in this course learned to think creatively and worked collaboratively in small groups to solve design problems. The positive results in this study strongly suggest the pedagogical model employed is well suited to prepare Business students to be better future promoters and consumers of design.
