Om emnet

The second part of the interaction design programme focuses on the complex connected world we now live in, where visual interfaces are increasingly prevalent (from mobile phones to large public information systems and presenting designers with fascinating, complex and highly relevant challenges. The course explores how these interfaces can be effectively integrated into networks and spaces; the information they contain and the messages they impart; and how we, as users, engage and interact with them.

New digital technologies, and the internet in particular, have changed the ways of production and consumption of information. The internet itself has undergone a sea-change in recent years, from primarily static and closed systems to infrastructures where openness, information sharing, collaboration and creativity are key ingredients. 

Massive information datasets and structures need to be presented in dynamic, user-friendly and accessible ways, allowing for easy navigation, providing an overview as well as detailed analysis. These sophisticated design challenges will be explored in a range of workshops and projects.The course will provide students with appropriate practical skills, design methods and design thinking tools, enabling them to tackle advanced screen-based design issues, and leading to the creation of engaging, informative and effective interfaces. The semester is a compilation of several smaller modules and workshops to introduce the students to the new and more screen specific methods, processes and tools that will form the core of the term. This will be followed by one final project, where students will develop more in-depth conceptual frameworks.

Læringsutbytte

KNOWLEDGE

Students will

• gain an insight and understanding of the fundamental challenges in the design of screen-based interaction design, and apply this to the design of engaging user-experiences

• understand the roles and opportunities for the designer in a technologically driven environment.

SKILLS

Students will

• improve their screen-based graphical technical and production skills

• be able to use tools and methods to prototype interactive concepts

• get aqainted with the iterative design process through hands-on tasks

• develop their skills at communicating their concepts and ideas in an engaging and convincing manner

Praktisk organisering og arbeidsmåter

Many small modules 

The semester is divided into many shorter modules, that together will form a comprehensive introduction to the field. Most of these modules will be initiated by lectures and/or workshops, followed by students working on their assignments with mentoring from the staff. Due to the intensity of the whole semester, we pride ourselves on the available supporting staff in many of the modules. 

Frequent crit’s and presentations 

In addition to mentoring, ‘the crit’ is the core method for dialogue throughout the semester, and students will engage in progress discussions and presentation 1 to 2 times weekly throughout the whole semester. 

Partner collaboration 

In the final module the students can choose from a various tasks with external collaborators. These collaborators range from local business and design consultant companies, to design research projects and future envisioning conceptualization. 

Group work 

Students will be working individually or in groups of two.

VurderingsformGrupperingKarakterskalaKommentar
VurderingsmappeIndividuellBestått / ikke beståttThe course consist of 4 - 7 modules, and all modules need to be passed in order to pass the whole course.

Evaluation will be based on the following elements in percentage:
• 95% Design projects, presentations, minor deliverables, workshops and appropriate presentation material for the final project. Projects will be assessed for their creativity, expression, innovation, usability and appropriateness of design.
• 5% contribution towards the group exhibition

The course will be assessed by an external sensor/examiner.

The course is evaluated as pass or fail.

If during the semester the student fail in one of the modules, they will be given the option to supply material within the timeframe of the semester. And in addition, the external sensor for the final module will go through all the deliverables from the whole semester for this student do a portfolio evaluation.
