Interaction Design 2

Module code: H1031
Level 5
15 credits in spring semester
Teaching method: Seminar
Assessment modes: Coursework

During the second term, you will deepen the knowledge gained in Interaction Design 1, especially about research methods and understanding system design. We expand on foundation interaction methods and skills to applications in system design and system thinking.

You'll work on a dedicated Creative Project. This enables you to apply your knowledge, specify a specific problem and come up with creative design solutions.

There will be a special emphasis on understanding how your project sits in the wider context of engagement from an individual user to the surrounding community.

This may lead to the development of new and less typically categorisable artefacts. So, you'll cover methods of designing from new perspectives and the perspective of others. This builds on approaches such as experience prototyping, visioning and other creative techniques (e.g. allowing the engagement with a variety of materials and tools).


Interaction Design 1

Module learning outcomes

  • Demonstrate an understanding of the main user, interaction, and context requirements
  • Apply a variety of creative design, visioning and prototyping techniques
  • Create a new interaction design concept for a specific problem and context
  • Evaluate the viability and user experience of the new design
