Fagligt indhold:Interaction Design, What, when, how and why

Through the history in the field combined with insights of the topic as well as research and methods tools, the course will focus on broadening the perception of what Interaction Design means and where and how it is applied;

The students should expect to gain a historical and theoretical perspective within Interaction Design in order to be able to approach current and future challenges. By the end of the course they should be able to present that they can reflect and critically assess the field.

Technology should always serve us as a tool. It should improve our everyday by facilitation. It should not overrule the individual or his/her daily tasks. It should be intuitive; it should adapt and transform in a conscious and responsible approach. Innovation doesn’t necessarily mean something “new” in its source, sometimes it just means rearranging. By taking people and, consequently, social needs in consideration first, there are higher chances of a successful outcome as they become co-authors of the product and not only spectators.

In other words, this course will present, discuss and analyse Interaction Design as a field, and evaluate its role in society, how it keeps influencing, altering and augmenting our lives. And how, you, as students, can expand your knowledge and skills in order to create new, relevant and rewarding projects and experiences within the field.
