Collect Box

My Collect Box is a collection of primary and secondary resources that feed into my Final Major Project topic: Design Thinking for Engineering Students in Latin America. I decided to divide my box in the following 8 chapters based on what I needed to learn:

  • Understanding Design Thinking: It was important to fully comprehend the concept on design thinking, how it is being used and the various processes and problems around it.
  • Product Design Class: I looked into the full curriculum of the Javeriana University Module and I reviewed all the lectures that are taught to understand the way the course it is structured and what is missing or how I can help and improve it.
  • Benchmarking: I researched about design thinking methods and tools, similar solutions that are currently present and potentially inspiring projects.

  • Engineering and Design in Education: Personally I think a crucial part of my FMP is to understand the role design can play in education which is why it was very important for me to read how this issue is being addressed by different practitioners and educators.
  • Learning Styles: While doing my research I found out that designers and engineers have a different mindset due to their different personalities, thus I continued researching about different personality types and how this affects learning styles.
  • Other: This part holds different type of information that is useful for my research such as communities of practice, mindfulness techniques and visits to exhibitions that inspire my design process.
  • Experiments: It was crucial for me to try out some things. Therefore I used the IDEO method cards and the Co-creational cards as inspiration. I had an interview with the professor of product design Juan Pablo Garcia and with some engineers, I tried out the Myers-Briggs personality type quiz on 5 engineers from different backgrounds and also the 34 students of Product design. Finally I wanted to see how the colombian students would react to the DIEP and Gibbs Cycle and thus I created an activity sheet for them to reflect upon one of the prototypes they are currently working on.

  • Processing: For me it is easier to understand and comprehend information when I write it down or create some sort of table to compare information which is why I did this for the key points I will constantly refer to throughout my FMP.
