Syfte

The aim of the course is to provide an introduction to the area of design for experience. The overall objectives are that the participant will develop a basic knowledge of:
- the experiential relation between customer/consumer and product;
- existing theories and models; and
- methods and tools for identifying affective needs and requirements and for evaluating design solutions from an experiential perspective.

Lärandemål (efter fullgjord kurs ska studenten kunna)

- describe existing theories regarding the experiential relation between user and product;
- apply the theories to the analysis of empirical studies on the experiential relation between people and technical design artefacts;
- define and differentiate between key concepts, such as affect, emotion, experience, feeling, and pleasure;
- analyse and reflect upon the relation between technical properties and perceived product qualities;
- describe, differentiate between and reflect upon the similarities and differences between engineering, psychological and design approaches to affective design and their consequences;
- describe and apply a set of defined methods and tools for identifying experiential needs and requirements and for evaluating design solutions from an experiential perspective.

Innehåll

The course will focus on the following three main areas:
- Key concepts such as affect, pleasure, emotion, and experience in relation to product design;
- Theories and models, useful in the area of design for experience;
- Methods and tools available for identifying and evaluating experiential product qualities.

More specifically the issues covered include:
- An introduction to experiential design. This part of the course will introduce the area to the course participants, it will define what constitutes the experiential relation between consumer and product/artefact and its rationale in new product development (NPD);
- Theoretical basis. This part of the course will present different emotional theories and theories on product elicited experiences. Also will be developed upon the concept of the product's communicative function, in particular product semantic aspects, i.e. product identity and product expressions. Being able to differentiate between the intended and perceived expression of a product design and intended impression/ emotional response is fundamental to design for experience;
- Methods and tools. Different methods and tools for eliciting consumers¿ experiential needs and requirements, and for evaluating ideas, concepts and product designs will be presented, discussed and assessed. These cover engineering approaches to design for experience, as well as more psychological approaches;
- Perceptual engineering/ perceptual design. The user receives information on the product through the different human senses. It is based on these impressions that the user forms his/her understanding of the product and its qualities. Traditionally the visual sense has been considered the most important, dominant sense but recently also e.g. hearing and haptics have received particular attention in a design context. This part of the course will address the fundamentals of human senses, perception and cognition. It will discuss the role of human senses in perceived product quality, and the difference between e.g. instrumental and autotelic issues will be clarified. The relation and the difference between a product's objective' (technical) properties and the 'subjective' perception and assessment of these properties will also be demonstrated.

Organisation

The course will be given as a series of lectures, seminars and assignments. The assignments are intended to develop the participants¿ knowledge and awareness.

Examination

Examination will be based on the assignments to be completed during the course. The assignments will be related to the different subjects addressed in lectures/seminars (theories, methods and tools etc.).

The grades range from Fail, to 3.0, 4.0 and 5.0. The final grade is an average of the grades given for the respective assignments.
