Module 1. AI Fundamentals

The applications of AI usage grow every day, making it necessary to have a key understanding of human/machine relationships and how they work alongside ethical considerations such as inclusivity, equity, transparency, security, and the societal impacts of AI. Students will understand how AI models learn on a scale based on the interpretation and synthesis of input data, pattern recognition, and language processing, and how these models use this learning for decision-making or making predictions.

Students will be equipped with a foundational understanding of AI mechanisms and familiarize themselves with fundamental concepts enabling them to grasp the potential and limitations of AI, not just understanding how AI works but also how to employ it ethically in design projects, ensuring that students can make informed decisions that respect societal values and contribute positively to their field.

Module 2. Advanced Human Intelligence Fundamentals

When thinking about using AI to tackle challenges, it’s important to consider the skills we need to focus on improving. Most importantly, we must strengthen our own human capabilities. In this module, students will emphasize the unique human skills essential for maximizing the benefits of AI in design, from analytical judgment and flexibility in problem-solving to emotional intelligence, creative assessment, intellectual curiosity, and bias detection.

This module aims to prepare students to leverage AI tools intelligently, maximizing their creative potential without losing sight of the human-centric aspects of design and decision-making.
Students will be empowered to refine their interpersonal skills, creativity, and ethical judgment. Additionally, it aims to cultivate a culture of creative assessment, encourage intellectual curiosity for lifelong learning, and develop strategies to identify and mitigate biases in design processes.

Module 3. AI Enhanced Workflows

The module focuses on the practical application of AI within design workflows, teaching students to seamlessly integrate AI tools to automate tasks, enhance creativity, and optimize design processes. Students will gain hands-on experience with AI technologies, learning when and how to effectively deploy them, emphasizing the transformative potential of AI in design, thereby elevating the quality and efficiency of their design outcomes.

Students will showcase their ability to not only improve efficiency and productivity in their work but also to push the boundaries of traditional design practices with AI-driven innovation. This module aims to prepare students for a future where AI is an integral part of the design process, enhancing their capability to lead and innovate in their respective fields.
