About the course

This course is offered as part of a programme:

Interaction Design

Course content

Through a designerly practice in the Bauhaus tradition, we will engage with the basic elements of interaction design - code, electronics and materials to bring to life interactive prototypes and sketches. Through exploration and mastery of materials and tools, we will explore notions of interaction qualities, opening discussions on interaction design research topics and relating design work to contemporary interactive artifacts. We purposefully bracket designing concepts or use situations.

The course consists of a series of short modules, each of which combine a theme and a technological material. Themes are explored through rapid design explorations with the paired material and critique sessions. In this process, we sharpen conceptions of interaction and the interactive experience, as well as the technical skills of design. The reflective journal includes on-going reflections of work conducted in the modules as well as a final essay.

The topic and technology for each module will vary. Students are expected to have prior experience with basic circuits, microcontrollers and Javascript.
