Synopsis:

In the course, the following aspects of design are treated: what are the characteristics of design problems; what is the structure of the design process; which forms of knowledge are used in design; which means of reasoning are used in design; what are the psychological structures used by designers; what is the role of external representations; and what is the nature and meaning of creativity in design? The theoretical background is based on two predominant notions of design: that of rational problem solving and reflection in action.
