Description

The objective of this course is to offer PhD students in information systems (IS) and computer science (CS) the methodological foundation of design science research and design thinking. Combining theoretical (morning), hands-on (afternoon) sessions and two invited lecture, this course will provide PhD candidates with the required methodological foundation for their research. In particular the course will address design science from various viewpoints: frameworks, paradigms, theory, processes, patterns, evaluation, ideation and rationale. These design techniques will be used in creative ideation workshops, scientific literature reading and reviewing, writing research proposals and papers. The course is structured around two main aspects of design: - Design Science (Vaishnavi and Kuechler, 2008) as the methodological foundation of research in IS and CS - Design Thinking (Brown, 2008) as the creative foundation for innovation and design.
