🧑‍🎨 We've spent the past 5 days doing a design sprint with IxD.ma from Eesti Kunstiakadeemia / Estonian Academy of Arts

The goal of our design sprint was to figure out new approaches to collaboration between Sandbox and EKA. Throughout the 5 days of the sprint, we managed to do it all: map the sprint questions, sketch the solutions ideas, decide on one, prototype it, and test it with our potential users.

💥 As a result, we have a clear image of where we will be heading in our collaboration and we cannot wait to share it with you! Stay tuned for what's coming because it will be BIG!

🎓 GDIP student teams of autumn 2020/21 presented their projects yesterday!

In this past semester, we had the honor to observe the hard work and wonderful final results of three teams:
🔸 Team AfB worked on the challenge connected to sustainability;
🔹 Team Tartu 2024 explored the field of culture and entertainment;
🔸 Team Hartmann sought solutions to the health technology project.

We are very proud of the final presentations of every team and we hope the students will use the learned concepts later on in their careers.

GDIP would not have been possible without inno.space - Design Factory Mannheim! Thank you for the two semesters of successful GDIP together and here's to more!

🎉 One more Sandbox course successfully ended today!

Today we had the last seminar of the Digital Product Management Seminar course. This semester, we had 7 seminar sessions, 38 students enrolled in the course, 4 various areas of digital product management, and 2 guest lecturers. We have talked about Digital Marketing, Product Strategy, Digitalisation, and the Role of a Product Manager.

We are happy that we had a chance to acquire a lot of new knowledge even though we had to take it to the fully online mode at the end. We are excited to have the seminar course again in spring!

💡 Digital Product Management Industry Project is getting to the finish line. In two weeks, the students will present the findings of their projects.

One of our students, Yana, is sharing her experience with the course:

🔹 What would you say was the most challenging about the project for you?
The problem we are working on is quite broad and complex, so at first, it was hard to get the head around it. I wasn’t even sure of how to start approaching it, and coming up with reasonable solutions seemed almost impossible at the time. So, I would say, the beginning of the project, where you have to kinda blindly trust the process for a bit, was the most challenging part. But once you get to see the first tangible results from your work, everything gets easier.

🔹 What was the most beneficial?
Before this course, whenever I brainstormed the ideas, dozens of constraints used to immediately pop up in my head of why something is too crazy to be done. Now my mindset has changed to “well, everything is impossible until someone does it” mode, and finally allows me to be truly creative. I perceive this mental switch to be the most valuable gain from the course.

🔹 Would you recommend joining Sandbox courses as a student? If yes, then why?
I’d definitely recommend joining this course to students who want to practice design thinking, work on a real problem while having all the freedom in the world to be innovative. There are no chasing points with quizzes, tests, and essays in this course, there is only hardcore problem-solving of the real-world challenges! And, last but not least, being a member of the welcoming and supportive Sandbox community is a valuable benefit on its own.

Thanks, Yana! We are excited to see your team's presentation soon. 👩‍💻🧑‍💻

We have reached the first milestone of our Global Digital Innovation Programme course that is delivered together with inno.space - Design Factory Mannheim 🤩

Yesterday, the three teams presented their first findings to their sponsors and received great feedback. The next step in the process is to iterate on the current findings and think about the problem again to be able to deliver truly human-centered solutions at the end of the course.

We cannot wait to see how the teams will develop their projects further!

🖌 On Friday, Elmo Soomets, Design Team Lead at Mobi Lab, delivered a guest lecture as part of our Digital Product Management Seminar course.

We learned about practical examples of conducting interviews, using different instruments (user stories, flow maps, wireframes, etc.), and coming up with out-of-the-box design ideas on the basis of Mobi Lab's experience.

Mobi Lab is also our partner at the Digital Product Management Industry Project course this semester. We are looking forward to having even more fruitful collaborations with them!

Sandbox - developing design thinking and product management at UT

Sandbox is a digital product innovation programme for master’s students at the Institute of Computer Science of the University of Tartu.

Within the programme, the students have a unique opportunity to engage in real-life challenges of companies, enhancing professional skills and delivering value at the same time. The students collaborate directly with partner companies to generate innovative ideas, as well as prototype and validate digital products.

The programme was initiated in order to develop and improve design thinking and product management at the University of Tartu. With these skills enhanced within the programme, future specialists will lead successful product management projects in Estonian companies.

The development of Sandbox programme started back in 2018, and on February 27, 2020, we have opened Sandbox space, home to the programme. Sandbox is located at the Delta Centre of the University of Tartu, the most modern centre of digital technology, analytical and economic thought in the Nordic region.
