STUDENT PROJECTS

On this page you find an overview of student projects that relate to the CCSDI network, including links to download the project reports. 


Several students from the Department of Design at NTNU have done projects that are linked to work from partners in the CCSDI cluster.

The PhD thesis from Manuela Aguirre Ulloa (from our partner Designit) was carried out indepentenly from our network. We present her thesis here, as the topic is very relevant for our network.

PHD THESIS

Manuela Aguirre Ulloa

TRANSFORMING PUBLIC ORGANIZATIONS INTO CO-DESIGNING CULTURES

A study of capacity-building programs as learning ecosystems

ABSTRACT

When designers try to create lasting change in the public sector, their aim is not only to co-design meaningful new or improved services, but also to embed the capacity – rather than dependency – of co-design into the organization. Through a systems oriented design (SOD) approach, two cases of capacity building programs from different countries were analyzed. An integrated research approach combining methods, such as research by design, gigamapping, interviews, and literature mapping was used to get new insights into the complex, contemporary design practice of nurturing and spreading organizational co-design capacities. This thesis presents analytical and conceptual models that help to make interactions between the emerging and existing organizational culture more explicit and actionable. This work gives new insights into how to create continuous change in the public sector and has implications for future design practice, research, and education.

MASTER THESES

Two students from the Department of Design at NTNU have done their master thesis for projects from partners in the CCSDI network.
Their thesis are written in Norwegian.

Cecilie Kristoffersen

Oppgaven omhandler hvordan man som fasilitator kan fasilitere for trygghet i en samdesignsworkshop. Samdesign er arena hvor tverrfaglig samarbeid kan finne sted i regi av design fasilitatorer. Samdesign foregår ofte i et workshop-format, dermed så denne oppgaven på hvordan man kan fasilitere for trygghet i en samdesignsworkshop og prøver å besvare følgene  problemstilling. «Hvordan kan det å fasilitere for trygghet i en samdesignsworkshop bidra til økt kunnskapsdeling blant deltagerne?»
Oppgaven ble gjennomført i samarbeid med Helseinnovasjonssenteret.

SAMSKAPING OG DESIGN AV KREFTVEIVISEREN

Maia Elisabeth Sirnes

En nettbasert veiviser til tilbud og informasjon for kreftrammede. Målet for  denne oppgaven har vært å undersøke hvordan kreftrammede og helsearbeidere orienterer seg i tilbud og tjenester i dag, og å utvikle et konsept som forslag til løsning for å bedre situasjonen. Bakgrunnen for prosjektet var et initiativ fra Kreftforeningen og Trondheim kommune. Masteroppgaven kan fungere som grunnlag for videre arbeid i arbeidsgruppa der også NTNU og SINTEF Digital helse er representert.

 

ARTICLES FROM DESIGN THEORY COURSE

ASSIGNMENTS FROM DESIGN SPECIALIZATION

The course Design Specialization offers students the opportunity to specialize in a particular aspect of Industrial Design. Building on the theoretical insights acquired during the writing of a scientific article for the Design Theory course, the students are offered the possibility to develop theoretical insights through a design research or exploration project. This could for example involve a survey, interview study or experiment, the development of a concept, prototype, manual or method relevant for the chosen area of specialization.

CASE STUDY OF EMPLOYEES’ EXPERIENCES WITH 
CO-CREATION

Astrid K. Mogstad

A qualitative inquiry about co-creation with kindergartens. By looking at how employees experience co-creative design projects, we can learn how to keep them engaged throughout the project.

DESIGN I NORSK BARSELOMSORG

Elisabeth Ancher Elboth

Et casestudie av nåværende designprosess i norsk helsesektor, og fremtidige anbefalinger for å lykkes med design av omsorgstjenester.

FREMTIDENS
BARSELTJENESTE

Julie Nyjordet Rossvoll
Ida Christine Opsahl

Målet med barselprosjektet har vært å få en bedre forståelse for norsk helsesektor generelt, med spesielt fokus på barseltjenesten i Trondheim.

 

DESIGN FOR SOCIETY

The course Design for Society looks at how design skills can be used to explore societal themes and how design methods can contribute to positive change. Engagemet and awareness of social challenges and opportunities play a central role in this course.

Every year the specific topic of the course is different. In 2018 the course focussed on Design for Health – facilitating for active, informed and involved patients. Marikken Høiseth wrote a blogg post about the course, presenting the student projects that related to the CCSDI network.
