Experimental Interaction Design
This is a two-week extensive hands-on course in interaction design. The main goal of the course is to empower people to shape their digital environment thus providing a new level of digital literacy.
The course introduces core design and interaction design topics in a provocative stance, inviting participants to reflect upon ongoing shifts, connections, and re-framings in just about every area of interaction design, and inciting a rebellion against passivity. This is complemented with the development of skills in systematic evaluation of usability and user experience of interaction designs. The expectation is to see participants take ownership of the interaction design process.
This course targets all sorts of ICT (Information and Communications Technologies) and non-ICT professionals and higher education students (Master’s, PhD) and provides interaction design understanding and skills to new but highly interested audiences. Examples include, but are not limited to, service providers, communicators, health professionals, educators, architects, designers, artists, and actors.
Students will develop skills to design, deploy and evaluate prototypes of digital artifacts ranging from simple web-based services and small applications to wearable or physiological computing solutions, and installations.
Upon full participation and completion of course work students will be awarded 4 ECTS points and a diploma of completion.
