The MOOC ‘Idea Generation’ is a collaboration between the Karlsruhe Institute of Technology (KIT) and KIC InnoEnergy aiming to explain techniques for the goal and process oriented generation of ideas. Idea generation is part of the fuzzy front end of the innovation process. Because of the close collaboration between KIT and KIC InnoEnergy, participants have the possibility to work on specific innovation topics in the area of sustainable energy. Dr. Daniel J. Koch will impart a broadly diversified knowledge of the methods used in idea generation. Moreover, F. Teufel and his colleague D. Buchholz (both from the Business Innovation sector in KIC InnoEnergy) will assume a supporting role in the course to present the topics innovation and idea generation from a practical view.
The course language is English, and the workload is about 4h/week.
The aim of the course is to enable participants to apply methods of idea generation on their own project.
