Match Studio is a dynamic research and learning space where interdisciplinary teams of students, academics and researchers engage, think, learn, and co-create innovative solutions to real-world challenges. We match up teaching and work-integrated learning with research and industry-linked projects. Drawing from a suite of collaborative facilitation tools, we apply ‘design thinking’ and ‘co-design’ methods and methodologies to identify and articulate a challenge, and then develop solutions that will deliver outcomes (products, services, processes, knowledge) that are designed to make a difference.
Drawing from the University’s over 45 academic disciplines, Match Studio develops project-specific interdisciplinary communities of practice that approach problems from new and user-focused perspectives.
We work with industry, government, non-government and not-for-profit organisations to help them solve societal, environmental, business and organisational problems by offering a suite of cutting-edge thinking and collaboration tools and processes. We do this by devising, coordinating and auspicing:
• Interdisciplinary, undergraduate and postgraduate course-integrated studio projects, linking students and industry
• Research-based studio projects and internships
• Design Thinking and Co-Design workshops for UniSA staff, industry and community groups tailored to clients’ specific challenges
