Aimed at designers, creative workers and other specialists who want to learn the tools of social innovation, and direct their practice towards the achievement of social impact. It focuses on the value of design as a vehicle for addressing social needs.
Knights Park Campus, Kingston University, Kingston Upon Thames, KT1 2QJ, Surrey, United Kingdom

Design for Social Innovation is an emerging mode of design practice gaining popularity and interest within the design professions and more widely, for example in the public sector. Local authorities are increasingly looking to employ designers to redesign public services and to deliver their programmes more effectively.

There is therefore demand for training in Design for Social Innovation. This is a distinguishing feature of the Sustainable Design MA, but there are designers and other practitioners who do not yet wish to embark on a full MA course. This module is for them.

The module will be based around a 'live' project brief, and include sessions with leading practitioners in the field.

"This module will be useful to designers and those who come from the world of frontline social impact services, who want to learn more about innovation and design - and to gain practical experience with which to develop." Mat Hunter (Chief design officer, Design Council)

Stand-alone module

This is currently a course-specific module within the Sustainable Design MA. It is also available as a credit-bearing stand-alone module, whereby it can be taken without enrolling on the Sustainable Design MA (although the credits could be used subsequently for entry to the course). Students enrolled on the MA and stand-alone modules are part of the same module cohort, participate equally, and have the same module experience.
