Abstract

The paper describes and reflects on a shift in teaching activities and learning objectives for innovation and design thinking. The purpose is to inspire lecturers and instructors to reconsider and redesign their pedagogical approach. A shift in industrial manufacturing practices, from a core product perspective to a user oriented value perspective, is the trigger for proposing a change in engineering educations. The importance to start on a small, but broad scale (i.e. in different types of courses), to be persistent and to understand that the effects often are lagged is the core message.

Keywords: engineering design education, design thinking, problem-based learning, innovation, creativity, idea generation, problem solving, problem setting, user-oriented development, product-service innovation
