Università degli Studi di Milano


First International Summer School
"Theories of Creative Design" for innovation in science and technology
Palazzo Feltrinelli – Università degli Studi di Milano
Gargnano del Garda (BS), Italy - September 20-26, 2009

A single theme, "Theories and Models of Creative Design", ensures consistency between the two schools. Within this theme, the first school focused on theories of creative design, while the second will focus on modeling creative processes in design. The two summer-school programs are self-contained and designed to be attended either separately or in combination.

The 2009 "Theories of Creative Design" summer school built on a grounding in creativity theory and quantitative and qualitative methods to analyze approaches to design and innovation. Industrial, artistic, and collaborative design were explored from the perspective of the user, the cognitive scientist, the software engineer, and the interaction scholar, as well as the designer. Several aspects of creative design, such as managing imagery, haptics and sound in designing user experience and collecting user feedback, were examined.
