DSDN112 T2 Introduction to Interaction Design
This course introduces students to basic concepts and practices of interaction design. Students explore the aesthetics of objects, software and devices from the perspective of the user’s experience and use context.
The central aim of this studio-based course is to introduce students to the field of interaction design at the crossroads of media design, industrial design, information design and anthropology. Students will learn to focus on designing interactive experiences for other people. This will require them to develop an understanding of other people’s perceptions, needs and behaviors, but also to establish a sense for aesthetic and appropriate form, as well as usability issues and human factors.
