LEAP got together with Innovation & Design graduate students from IED – Madrid, Spain at Parsons. It was an informal session to exchange each others design processes and curriculum.
Most of us being Masters students from the Strategic Design and Management program, we also spent a lot of time discussing our research projects. They too were spending this year developing their final research projects, so brainstorming and presenting our ideas really helped us get constructive feedback from both the students and faculty.
It was very interesting to learn about their program. Their course, much like ours, creates an environment that promotes divergent thinking and the analysis of current design from a range of different approaches – business strategy, production and communication.
