Service Design for Circular Economy
NOTE. you can replace the Service Design study unit (R0216) with this study unit focused on the circular economy.
This is an online implementation consisting of two separate parts. The first Theory section 1 is a prerequisite for the second Project section 2.
The Theory section 1 (online) runs through 1.9. - 5.10. and needs to be completed before taking the Project section.
The Project section 2 (online) starts on 13.10. with a joint kick-off. Final presentations (pitching) will be on 8.12, course end on 13.12. with self & peer assessments.
Note. project section includes several online sessions, which are mandatory, e.g. ideation workshop on Miro. Please check the dates below.
THEORY SECTION: 3ects
5 individual Quizzes on Canvas, scale 1-5
PROJECT SECTION: 7ects
Team assignment: service concept and final service design portfolio, scale 1-5
including 4 portfolio returns after each development phase
Self- and peer assessment, instructor assessment.
The evaluation is based on Laurea's evaluation criteria level 2.

According to the degree regulations (section 18) “students must be present in the first contact session or notify their teacher in charge if they cannot attend. If they fail to notify the teacher of their absence in the first contact session, their enrolment will be rejected. Another student in the queue may be enrolled in the study unit in the place of the absent student.” (Laurea degree regulations)
In the case of online studies the lecturer can also specify some other way than participation on an online meeting what is required from the student so that he/she verifies his/her attendance on the study unit (Decision by the vice president, education 7/2019).
Five spots reserved for open UAS students.

According to degree regulations “All students are entitled to demonstrate their competence. The recognition and accreditation of prior competence is initiated by the students themselves. The competence is recognised and accredited by the teacher responsible for the module or study unit or another person designated by the director of the UAS unit. The assessment is carried out according to the same criteria and grading scale as that adopted for the corresponding study unit.” For further information visit Link.
Theory section: no alternatives
A prior knowledge and competence in an applied service design project can be manifested through alternative methods. For example, as a detailed 12-15 page project report which includes the project partners' evaluations. For further consultation, please be in touch with the instructor.
