Content and learning outcomes

Course contents

This course builds on a large project where the students will apply theories and methods for user centred interaction design. This task implies that the students mainly work in project groups with studio based learning.

Intended learning outcomes

In the course the student will present ability in:

  • analyzing practice (needs and opportunities)
  • criticize a given problem and explore a design space
  • chose among different user centred design methods
  • work with and develop prototypes for the design process different stages
  • reflect on prototypes                                    
  • develop parallel solutions for design of a given situation
  • motivate and criticize design decisions
  • integrate, compare and relate theory and practice,
  • act independently, use theories, generalize results from project to other situations and stakeholders.
