|Can’t make it to class?||A recording will be available after class.|
Here are the promised design thinking debrief and writing proposals videos. These are from last year’s class.
I’ve also added a video from the old version of this unit from 2014 on strategic programming, which I think you’ll find interesting.
Design thinking debrief
A couple of years ago, Jo Beazley (who joined us in our readers’ advisory Twitter chat) guest lectured in one of my units (the old Information Programs) on purposeful programming. Jo provides her perspective on the importance of strategic linkage in programming and programming for a purpose, and runs through a bunch of her projects to illustrate these ideas.

Things to read this week
These readings aren’t critical for class, but you should read them before you really get stuck into working on the assignment.
Types of programs, products and services
These readings focus on types of programs, products and services. They’ve been selected to help you frame your thinking around the program, product or service you’ll be proposing in Assignment 1 and 2.
