This course intro­duces stu­dents to the spec­trum of design approaches that involve inter­ac­tion, focus­ing pri­mar­ily on the prin­ci­ples under­pin­ning inter­ac­tion design and the fun­da­men­tals that would apply to any inter­ac­tion prob­lem in the same way that gestalt and design prin­ci­ples apply to any visual prob­lem. Projects chal­lenge stu­dents’ abil­ity to apply these prin­ci­ples to a vari­ety of inter­ac­tion sce­nar­ios — web, prod­uct, expe­ri­ence — and empha­size design and pro­to­typ­ing rather than pro­duc­tion of solu­tions. Stu­dents leave the course pre­pared for inter­ac­tion design projects involv­ing more spe­cific and com­plex chal­lenges. FRE­QUENCY OF OFFER­ING: This course is typ­i­cally offered in both the fall and win­ter terms of every aca­d­e­mic year, though sched­ul­ing may vary accord­ing to future term circumstances.
