Specific entry requirements

English 6 (or by other approved means with the equivalent proficiency level)
Applicants enrolled in a programme at Chalmers where the course is included in the study programme are exempted from fulfilling the requirements above.

Course specific prerequisites

To be eligible for this course, students must have successfully completed the courses TDA496 Interaction design methodologies, 7.5 credits, and TDA492 Graphical interfaces, 7.5 credits, or equivalent.

Aim

The course provides the student with an opportunity to individually or in a smaller group (1-3 people) study something of relevance in the area of interaction design outside of the regular syllabus. The project can focus upon implementation of software as long as there is a clear connection to interaction design.

Learning outcomes (after completion of the course the student should be able to)

  • Describe how project reports can be structured and what they should contain
  • Show how referencing of sources should be used in academic texts
  • Independently carry out a small project in interaction design following established best practices and procedures in small projects in interaction design
  • Document project work in a suitable form given the nature of the project
  • Do appropriate literature and background research for a small project
  • Establish an appropriate scope for a project plan to make best possible use of all resources available, including skill sets and time
  • Reflect upon potential social and ethical problems that may arise from the result of the project

Content

Students (preferably with varying backgrounds) perform a development project. Suitable project ideas should be developed in collaboration with a teacher. The group should develop design or software (under supervision). The development should be based on a plan that is created in advance of the project start. The plan should contain goal of the project, planned process, and planned result.

Please note that registration to the course is done by the examiner and/or supervisor, not by the student.

Organisation

Independent project work typically in groups of 1-3 people, with supervision. The work shall start based upon the plan developed before the course starts, document how the work progresses, including any changes to the plan, and end with the writing of a report.

Examination including compulsory elements

The course is examined via an individual written report. Common parts are allowed but should be noted. The report should contain an individual reflection.

To pass the course, the individual student must have contributed in a substantial way to the final project results of the team, and must be able to explain their process, results, and the different team members' contribution.
