This course is organized by IDC | Interaction Design Collegium at Department of Computer Science and Engineering, Chalmers University of Technology. It is being held at the IT-University in Gothenburg, as a part of the Interaction Design programme.


Content and Aim
The course introduces basic design methodology in interaction design with focus on design issues related to aesthetics. The course consists of several smaller exercises, a group project, and an individual examination. Theory is combined with practical training to give students training in working systematically with the design of computational things and systems. Training in specific design methods are provided through exercises and the group project while meta methods such as iterative design are aspects of the group project.
