My Courses

Interaction Design

Interaction Design

This course is an introduction to Interaction Design, encompassing the physical process of designing for interaction and enabling students to think and speak critically about design problems. Students will work both individually and in teams, creating design deliverables with a social conscience. Process blogs will incorporate reflection on readings alongside of project documentation. They will develop a foundation in interaction design that will be applicable to a multidisciplinary field.
