March 1 @ 12:10 pm - 1:00 pm

Event Navigation

How do questions influence the thinking process in design? To what extent do (high-level) questions influence problem definition and shape idea generation? What type of question-asking behavior drives the creative thinking process? How does one learn to ask “good” questions?

In this talk, Carlos Cardoso, a new associate professor in the Department of Industrial Design, will discuss the role of question-asking in designing as part of his research (and educational) work in the larger domain of design methodology, where he investigates how we might support designers to better analyze, understand, reflect and implement the most suitable methods, principles, practices and procedures of design across the diverse contexts they might work in, irrespective of their design specialization.

Cardoso’s talk is part of the Friday Research Seminar Series sponsored by the Institute for Design Research and Outreach. All are welcome to attend this brown-bag session. Cookies will be provided.
