Co-Design FaceMooc

A creative, supportive and collaborative learning experience, aimed at equipping and improving your co-design knowledge, skills and contacts

FaceMooc is a free 5 week online course for design professionals interested in co-design which draws on 3 years of developing and testing innovative approaches to co-design through the PROUD project.

Original content has been created with design experts and leading thinkers from across Europe including contributions from international lead thinkers including Charles Leadbeater, Liz Sanders and Leon Cruickshank.

Unique co-design case studies have been commissioned for Facemooc for co-design experts to share their experience about when co-design works – and just as importantly when everything didn’t go to plan.

Four international co-design expert mentors have been recruited to actively support FaceMooc participants in the practical coursework component of the course.

New tools and approaches will be shared through FaceMooc. The group will be encouraged to share your own expertise and tools for co-design as part of a collaborative learning process.

Course content will be in English.

FaceMooc will take place from the 3rd November – 6th December 2014. This is the first MOOC in co-design that uses this approach. If you’re interested in taking part you will need to have a Facebook account and be prepared to spend 2-3 hours a week on the course.

FaceMooc is a part of the PROUD project, promoting innovative knowledge exchange through co-design. PROUD is funded by the EU through the INTERREG IV program.
