Innovators practice the art of persuading people to accept changes in how they live—in work, leisure and social interaction. This module’s object is to introduce students to digital innovation, and to encourage them to embark on a personal journey of creativity and challenge. Inspirational innovators will be invited to present topics related to digital innovation, such as successful innovative projects of start-up teams and advanced development teams, innovative approaches such as Design Thinking, and opportunities for innovation, the vibrant intersection of energising technology trends and new markets. This module will be graded as “Completed Satisfactory” or “Completed Unsatisfactory” (CS/CU).
