Interaction Design Methodology
You will get an introduction to basic design methodology in interaction design with focus on design issues related to aesthetics. We combine theory with practical training to give you training in working systematically with the design of computational things and systems. Training in specific design methods are provided through exercises and the group project while meta methods such as iterative design are aspects of the group project.
You will learn the difference between the methods employed in craftsmanship, traditional design, and modern design as well as learn to develop and describe new design methods. In the end you will be able to criticize design processes with respect to methods used and to modify design methods to fit the context they are to be used in. You will also learn how to plan design projects with respect to design goals, stakeholders' requirements, and available resources and expertise as well as to design with regards to aesthetical issues of interaction.
