Master Design (MDes) Social Innovation

Ravensbourne
Campus Part time 1 - 2 years September 2017 United Kingdom London

The Master of Design in Social Innovation applies the lens of design thinking to address some of society’s most intractable social, environmental and economic challenges. [+]

Top Part time Masters in Media in Europe. The Master of Design in Social Innovation applies the lens of design thinking to address some of society’s most intractable social, environmental and economic challenges. Its focus is on the organisational models, methods and approaches needed to shape positive social change, sustainable growth and new business models. In the face of the promise of untold growth we are now confronted by a harsh reality: that in the second decade of the 21st century the traditional model of ‘business as usual’ is no longer viable. In applying a range of approaches to designing and prototyping social ventures and models of organisation, the MDes in Social Innovation will equip you with a practice-based approach to embedding innovation in the area of sustainability, community resilience, corporate social responsibility, venture philanthropy and organisational agility. Working with a cross- disciplinary team of professionals, the course will allow you to learn about radical ideas, evolve these ideas and test them in a ‘lived’ organisational environment. The MDes Social Innovation will demonstrate that many of the most successful designs, innovations and innovators have learned to operate across the boundaries between disciplines, sectors, organisations and traditional services. At its heart lie three design principles: an holistic approach - the need to approach innovation from a ‘holistic’ point of view, drawing on its potential impact in terms of people, technology, the environment, psychological and emotional meaning and long-term sustainability a core intent - the potential to develop a ‘core intent’ and value proposition to organisational models to stimulate commercial and brand value through interaction, social value, collaboration and ideas generation participatory and inclusive - the importance of developing social and environmental solutions ‘with’ and ‘by’ key stakeholders, customers/markets etc. and not simply ‘to’ and ‘for’ people. The course will develop your ideas and skills in people-centred and organisational leadership as a way of transforming the way that public, private and not-for-profit services are shaped using design thinking methodologies.

Top Part time Masters in Media in Europe. Master in Cognitive Systems & Interactive Media The mission of the Master in Cognitive Systems and Interactive Media (CSIM) is to train the researchers and professionals who will investigate, develop and design the interactive cognitive systems and media of tomorrow. The results may be physical devices, such as robots, or logical ones, such as sophisticated software that provides new experiences and/or virtual environments. The CSIM programme draws on three main fields of knowledge: interactive technology, cognitive sciences and interactive media. To achieve its objective, the programme takes an interdisciplinary approach that is critical to providing students with an in-depth knowledge of the design, construction, development, deployment and analysis of interactive cognitive systems and media, along with the necessary skills to successfully carry out all of these stages. The CSIM programme's goal is to produce integrators of such interactive cognitive devices and programmes. The CSIM offers a wide range of lectures and tutorials by renowned scientists. In terms of theory, students will acquire a basic understanding of the cognitive functions of the brain and its computational models, key issues in the development of interactive cognitive systems. At the practical level, students will learn to design and develop creative and scientific solutions in order to rationally, consistently and efficiently integrate current and future technologies into interactive cognitive systems. The CSIM programme offers students the scientific and practical tools they need to pursue their studies independently and to develop and integrate interactive cognitive systems into useful systems with real-world applications. Objectives The main objective of the Master in Cognitive Systems and Interactive Media is to train the next generation of researchers and professionals who will research, develop, design and analyse cognitive systems and interactive media. Who is it for? Students on this master's programme should have a background in technology engineering (computing or telecommunications), psychology, biology, audiovisual communication or another area related to the programme's interdisciplinary approach. Candidates must be highly motivated and hard-working and have both a strong interest in technology and cognitive sciences and a creative spirit. They must moreover have prior knowledge of programming and be willing to immerse themselves in technological topics. Structure The programme consists of a single track providing a solid, coherent vision of cognitive systems and interactive media. It is essentially geared towards research, and students must complete 20 compulsory credits, 20 optional credits and a 20-credit final research project. The master's programme can be completed in one year, if taken full-time, or in two, if taken part-time. The programme is organized into terms and is designed to reflect the priority areas of research defined by the European Commission. Content The master's programme aims to train integrators of complex systems and devices by combining knowledge and skills from the fields of interactive communication, cognitive psychology, linguistics, art, digital technology and communication. The programme is designed to reflect the priority areas of research defined by the European Commission, which it groups into the following general topics: Cognitive Systems: This track encompasses functional aspects of the concepts, methods and advanced technologies required to enable future smart devices to perceive, decide, feel emotions and behave. Specifically, it focuses on their capacity to adapt to and behave in complex environments, on their ability to interact and communicate with humans and other devices, and on how our understanding of biological systems can help develop the cognitive systems of the future. This track trains students to become the behavioural and psychological engineers of tomorrow's devices. Content and Media: The objective is to prepare students to contribute to the challenges facing both today's society at large and particular individuals and organizations with regard to the vast variety of partially interactive content that they must present and process. Special emphasis is placed on key concepts and methods in the optimization of the interaction between humans and machines on the one hand and information and the media on the other. Additionally, this track explores, analyses and thoroughly experiments with specific features of interactive media with a view to broadening the range of possibilities and adding new potential rather than simply replacing or enhancing non-interactive media. Quality of Life: In future, healthcare and social services will rely on interactive devices and media. The main challenges will be not only to cure, but also to maintain and enhance quality of life through cognitive systems and interactive media. Students on this track will be immersed in the psychological and technological aspects of this major development. To contribute to improving quality of life, new methods and media will need to strike the right balance between technological possibilities and human creativity. Interaction and Mobility: This track will introduce students to this complex system of problems and train them to apply a wide range of concepts and technologies in order to help solve them. Likewise, human mobility involves many forms of transport, which generate a variety of needs with regard to device autonomy and the presentation of information.
