17 July-28 July 2017 – for all participants
24 July-4 August 2017 – reserved for NORDPLUS participants
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 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.
Upon completion of the course students will have an understanding of what interaction design is and will grasp the full cycle of the design process including the stages of discovering, defining, developing and delivering concepts targeting areas of their interest. Students will also develop skills to design, deploy and evaluate prototypes of digital artefacts ranging from simple web-based services and small applications to wearable or physiological computing solutions, and installations.
