All students are warmly welcome to attend MA Tatu Marttila’s doctoral thesis defence, Platforms of Co-Creation: Learning Interprofessional Design in Creative Sustainability.
Time: Tuesday 18 September 2018 (12-14)
Place: Aalto University School of Chemical Technology, lecture hall Ke2, Kemistintie 1, Espoo
In his doctoral research, Tatu Marttila focuses on a case study of interprofessional design education in the context of sustainabillity. His dissertation examines the initiation and implementation of Creative Sustainability: a new interprofessional Master’s degree program in Aalto University, Finland. The analysis is based on three sets of interviews with supportive data, collected from the initiators, teachers, and students of the CS program between the years 2010 and 2015. Overall, the findings contribute to an understanding of how design professionalism contributes to sustainability, what type of support is needed in learning for interprofessional design for sustainability, and how such learning develops the design academia itself.
