In this course learners will bring together all that they have learnt so far to design change to support learning and innovation. The selection of the issue they will address is theirs to make. Learners will be constantly challenged by peers, lecturers and other interested parties to justify their analysis of the issue, their design decisions, and to predict issues and challenges and how they will address these. They will provide professional feedback to peers on their designs as an ongoing feature of the course, but also as part of their assessment.
