Methods are put into practice by testing the ideas with target groups. At the end of the course, the teams will present their final product/service to their chosen target group.
The course consist of a 12h starting day plus five mutual meetings and teamwork. During the autumn, you will work with your team in developing your idea. There will be exchange students and Finnish students in each team. The working language of the course is English.
