About

The CoDesign Institute is an immersive two-week course on codesign methodology and theory intended for students interested in equitably engaging with a variety of stakeholders in the creation process. The course will equip students with the design concepts, methods, and project management tools to effectively collaborate with partner organizations such as municipal government, nonprofit organizations, and grassroots community groups. It will introduce students from a range of academic backgrounds to the theory and practice of collaboration, the importance of power and positionality, and the value of dynamic and engaging design methods. Case studies, interactive in-class group activities, and asynchronous group work will compose the intensive institute experience. The course will be offered entirely on Zoom and will meet every weekday from December 27 to January 7 from 9:30-11am.
