The exchange term at Interaction Design Programme deals with the relation between people and Information Technology with particular focus on the interaction between product and user. We see the discipline of Interaction Design as the ability to design both the cognitive and physical interface and integrate them into a successful whole. Our aim is to enable designers to create sustainable, comprehensible and pleasurable information based products, services and environments.
5ID077 Form Workshop 1
The course contains specialised studies within the field of form theory, sound and product interaction.
Experiment with sound, imagery and interaction, 3 credits.
The section contains several short practical design projects where students in teams explore the connections between sound, imagery and interaction, and their relation to chosen products identities and brands. The students are introduced to relevant software for sound processing during this section.
Product analysis and project work, 4.5 credits.
This section contains design and form theory where students in teams analyse and design a product with form and sound qualities. The result is presented with physical models and adherent sound demonstrations.
5ID193 Communication Design for co-creation
The purpose with this course is to explore alternative ways, through traditional and new media, to visualize and communicate information with focus on Service Design and to provide training in running co-creative design processes together with users and stakeholders.
5ID079 Project 2: General Product
The overall aim is to provide students with practical experience in designing a product or a system that caters to a broad user group. The project provides a platform to explore techniques and methods in the context of design ethnography and participatory design. The project allows students to discover and think critically about design ethnography and participatory design through a combination of practical experience and the experience of others. Each project phase is supported by teachers, structured and unstructured activities and literature and is dependent on students' engagement and discovery. Students work in groups throughout the project and invited to establish a temporary working relationship with students from other relevant disciplines. The final results can include software-hardware products, services, or organisational frameworks depending on the results of the studies in design ethnography and participatory design. The results are presented in the form of visualisation of user observations, sketch models, interface views, reports and screen-based digital presentations.
1. Design Ethnographic Methods, 5 credits
2. Participation design and concept study, 5 credits
3. Design development and presentation, 5 credits
