Design Thinking and Creativity on Tap for Friday, Oct. 30

design-thinkingDr. David Matthews, associate dean of facilities and technology and professor/chair of interior design will speak on “Design Thinking and Creative Process: How designers approach wicked problems” at the next UT Science Forum Friday, October 30.

As stated by Herbert Simons, “Everyone designs who devises courses of action aimed at changing existing situations into preferred ones.”┬áThis presentation will outline a universal, multi-disciplanary, design process that outlines how designers change existing conditions into preferred outcomes. Rooted in the traditions of architecture, Design Thinking is emerging as a tool of innovation and exploration for all disciplines where future outcomes are at stake.

The UT Science Forum begins at 12 p.m. in the Thompson-Boling Arena Cafe, Rooms C-D. Each 40-minute presentation is followed by a Q&A session. Guests are encouraged to bring their lunch or purchase it from the Arena.

The Forum is free and open to the public.
