Decent enough module, nothing to shout home about but was overall enjoyable.

I loved this module, it takes you through the steps of how to make your innovation a reality; calling upon knowledge you learned from the Level 2 Design Module.

I recently used the design pitch format in work to propose a new idea so I can definitely say that the course has real world applications.
The teaching staff on this course are great and I could not recommend them enough.

The assessment/project at the end is the best way to end a Design module, just don't panic that you do not have an Innovation Idea yet, your tutor is there to refine any ideas and guide you.

Those of you who are studying this in a Software Development Pathway like me, there are some crossovers in User Research and all that so it is totally relevant for this pathway.
