Creative Disruption is a practical research course that focuses on critical engagement, encouraging a self-directed approach in learning. It is part of the Hacking Minor elective at the WDKA for third year students (coming from various Major courses). This 18 week course is based on the theoretical framework of tactics and strategies from De Certeau’s ‘The Practice of Everyday life’ and applied to practical experiments relatable to the everyday practice of students.
