Week 1: In-class Exercise
We did an in-class exercise, Rebuild in small groups exploring the various broad topics such as Political, Technological, Environmental, Financial, Social, Physical and Energy to help develop potential research topics.
Week 2: Brainstorming Topic Phase
In this phase, I brainstormed ideas and went through the steps that enabled me to find a manageable research direction.
Step 1: List 10 broad topics that are in the areas of interest or personal connection.
Step 2: Find subtopic possibilities within the broad topic.
Step 3: Come up with a design research question/challenge with each subtopic.
