Systems Thinking and Changemaking Information Design Capstone
As Information Designers, we take great interest in human-centered design and strive to empathize with various audiences to gain a deeper understanding of the issue at hand. This year, we have put together a wide range of topics and information to present our findings.
What is Humanly?
For the past three years, the senior Information Design students have chosen one topic of focus from the United Nations 17 Sustainable Development Goals and applied it to a global problem. Some students have refined their research to focus on local issues faced by Calgarians and Albertans alike. The problem is approached by the student in the form of a “How Might We…” statement, using human-centered design principles to attempt to solve or address these wicked problems. Conducting analysis from primary research and subject-matter experts, students deliver insight into these elaborate systems, showcasing their ability to identify and interpret complex information.
