Interaction Design: Interactivity
About the course
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.
At least 45 credits in the main field of Interaction Design.
The University provides students who participate in or who have completed a course with the opportunity to make known their experiences and viewpoints with regards to
the course by completing a course evaluation administered by the University. The University will compile and summarize the results of course evaluations as well as informing participants of the results and any decisions relating to measures initiated in response to the course evaluations. The results will be made available to the students (HF 1:14).
