About the course

The COVID pandemic has impacted the lives and routines of people everywhere, the majority of which live in rapidly changing urban environments. It may be that the lives we had prior to the pandemic will never return as urbanization and globalism due to technological developments have proven to be one of the major causes for the rapid spread of the virus. The Methodology course for the 2nd year inclusive industrial design students centers on research methods for concept development, and this year the theme was "Life during COVID". Students formulate and present innovative ideas to address the needs of while living through COVID, discussing key topical questions, such as how will the public sphere be impacted after shutdowns are a thing of the past? What are the implications on social interactions? Is it possible to define the social conduct and behaviors that take infection and exposure to infection into consideration? What are the new concepts, products, and solutions that design can offer to address this changing reality? 
Prof. Kenny Segel and Avi Faibish have designed a globally oriented course focused on current day needs in collaboration with the NID School of Design in Ahmedabad, India.
