Going Deeper with Theory – ETHNO 467

What will you learn from this course?

Design anthropologists agree unanimously: design ethnography goes deeper with theory. ETHNO 467 will introduce you to key current, tested approaches in scientific anthropology, ranging from social networks to pathways of cooperation, and a new approach known as Behavior Centered Design.

 What critical skills will you build?

You will learn the critical role that theoretical concepts play in generating insights from ethnographic research.

 How will you build those skills?

In ETHNO 467 you will reexamine exercises from earlier Certificate courses, and explore new exercises, going “deeper with theory” by applying concepts from current scientific anthropology to rethink your insights. You will share your work with and gain insights from other participants in the course.
