Professional Development Award in Service Design
The PDA in Service Design covers the core skills, tools & mindset you need to service design powerful interventions for complex issues. You’ll be taken on a journey, a process spanning four learning units (Tools & Methods, User Research, Co-Design and a Service Design Project), over 5 months with 17 live session & interactive content. We connect theory & practical applications through a mixture of experiences, live classrooms, watch anytime videos, teamwork, mentoring & case studies.
It's creative learning for changemakers, it’s about learning by doing. We believe the ability to question, be curious & interrogate are as important as knowing the methods & mapping the journeys. See https://www.sda.ac.uk/
