Introduction to Interaction Design—
ARTS 286 – Interaction Design
Summer Session 1

This course will enable students to develop their skills as designers of interactive user-experiences through a series of hands-on projects and exercises. Working individually and in small groups, students will experiment with various prototyping and iteration methods to create, test and refine designs for interactive applications based on client needs, user feedback and in-class design critiques. Regular readings and discussion-based classes will support students with incorporating contemporary design theory and the influence of historical perspectives into their work. Finally, an in-depth closing project will provide students with the opportunity to expand one of their projects into a refined proof-of-concept or working prototype which will serve as a professional work-sample or portfolio item demonstrating the student’s design skills.
