Module overview

This module aims to introduce students to practice, concepts and theory in the area of interaction design and new media. The teaching is centred on practical workshops that cover user-centred design tools and approaches including observational research, user modelling, ideation, prototyping and user testing techniques. A series of lectures introduce fundamental design thinking, interaction design and digital media concepts to provide a contextual basis for the student’s work. This module emphasises techniques employed in commercial studios and a user-centred approach to design; providing students with valuable experience of design for the ‘real’ world.
