Urban Planning is more-than-human-centred design for cities, environments, and policies. I'm currently doing subjects on governance, social justice, applied social research, urban and environmental problems. This is a personal interest, but it enriches my design and research thinking in many ways.
This degree was a smorgasbord of interaction design, human-centred computing, human-computer interaction, creative programming, and random photography electives that I snuck in.
Learned how to design future-thinking studies, in further time horizons, to create strategic foresight. Taught by The Institute For The Future (IFTF) at EPIC.
