Core Studio Interaction Design 2017
In the spring term 2017, Sabrina Hauser and I taught the 2-year core studio interaction design course at Emily Carr. This course offers students a foundational understanding of interaction design and interaction design practice. Students engage in three projects and while doing so learn key design techniques and methods including user research, personas, scenarios, Kano analysis, information architecture, design techniques for graphical user interfaces, concept iterations, prototyping techniques, as well as presentation and evaluation techniques.
The three studio projects include a re-design of an application, the development of a tangible user interface and a concept design for emerging technologies. Each project focuses on a different aspect of interaction design as well as a different part of the design process. This way students gain an insight into different interaction design disciplines while also working through the single parts of the iterative design process.
This course was a direct follow-up from Spring 2016, in which Sabrina and I taught the course for the first time.
*Sabrina and I want to thank HfG and especially Hans Krämer, Jörg Beck, Ralf Dringenberg, and Michael Götte, who have been inspiring us in the way we teach interaction design.
