Eligibility:

For single subject courses within Chalmers programmes the same eligibility requirements apply, as to the programme(s) that the course is part of.

Course specific prerequisites

A course in Human Computer Interaction, 5p
and the courses
Interaction design - grahical user interfaces, 6p
Interaction design - ubiquitous computing, 6p
Interaction design - design methods, 3p
Or similar.

Aim

The course aims at a deepened understanding of the central design issues in interaction design by means of practical training in design projects.

Content

Interaction design is about forming the interaction between people and objects in which information technology is a central component. As computational technology becomes an increasingly important material also in the design of our everyday things and environments, we need a comprehensive view on design with respect to both users and technology. This makes interaction design an area of growing importance in systems development, as well as in industrial and product design.

Organisation

The course is organised as a project course running part-time 50% for the whole semester. Design projects are carried out in groups, under supervision. The results can be either conceptual designs or working prototypes.

Before a design project is initiated, a project proposal has to be approved by the course responsible teacher. The course requires a strong interest in, and capability of, independent design work.

Literature

Course literature is chosen in consultation with the course responsible teacher and assigned supervisor.

Examination

Written and oral presentation of project. Individually written essay on given subject related to interaction design. At the end of the course, the design projects are presented at an exhibition.

Grades: F, 3, 4, 5.
