I teach both in the bachelor Industrial Design Engineering and the master programme Design for Interaction. Next to this, I supervise various graduation students in close relation to my research. Most of the times, these students use the design method I am developing within my research.

ID5161 ViP Vision in Product design
Involvement: course coordinator, teacher and coach.
This course further builds on the method Vision in Product design (ViP). After a short summary of the basics, a more advanced application of the method will be explained and experienced by applying the ViP approach to dominant issues in society, like for instance immigration, democracy, social responsibility, education and cultural heritage.

IO2031 PO3, Fuzzy Front End
Involvement: course coordinator, ViP expert and coach.
This design course consists of 3 major parts, a strategic part in which students develop a strategic company vision and a new product development plan for that company, a second part in which they develop a vision or motto for the interaction between the user and a new product, in a certain context, and a third part in which a product concept is developed and then presented to the client together with a market introduction plan.

ID4216 Context & Conceptualisation
Involvement: ViP teacher and coach.
The Master’s course ‘Context and Conceptualisation’ deals with the various contexts surrounding the product and the users’ interaction with the product. Examples of such contexts are the situation in which the product is used, the people that are involved and the role of the product in the user’s life, even when the user is not physically using it.
