Interaction designers design and build meaningful and innovative experiences in all realms of work, lifestyle, and play. This introduction course will take a studio-based, collaborative, playful approach to learning about the Interaction Design major. We will explore investigative research, systemic thinking, creative prototyping, and hands-on building. Our class projects will create through a number of different interactive canvases such as mobile, desktop, car, game console, kiosk, and apps. We will also investigate how interaction design plays an increasing role in adjacent design disciplines such as industrial, graphic, fashion, film, sculpture, gaming and architecture.
