Implementation and methods of teaching

The development task of the study course involves designing a digital solution for a company in groups using the Lean Service Creation (LSC) method. In the course, two distance learning days and guidance are organized together. Other work is done independently and remotely in groups. The first remote day consists of an introductory expert lecture on user experience design and familiarization with the LSC method. We also test an interactive rapid prototyping software in practice (

Touchscreen devices are emphasized as a platform. The development tasks are distributed at the end of the day, and we start working on them in groups. On the second day, the groups present their development tasks, and there is a feedback discussion. Three remote control sessions are organized using the Zoom software between the shared remote days.
