Abstract

This article introduces the intensive course Design Exploration and Experimentation (DEE), which encourages students’ free creative expression and supports managing of the creative process. The main objective of the course is to provide students with insights into inventive processes by utilizing the means of experimenting, exploration, documentation and reflection. In this article, we present one student's creative process in detail. Through this example, we emphasize the significance of teaching reflective and exploratory skills as a part of design education. The main purpose of this article is to lay the foundations for the DEE course as an educational platform.
