CS-486 / 4 crédits

Enseignant: Pu Faltings Pearl

Langue: Anglais


Summary

This course focuses on goal-directed design and interaction design, two subjects treated in depth in the Cooper book (see reference below). To practice these two methods, we propose a design challenge, which is further divided into mini-projects evenly spaced throughout the semester.

Content

Keywords

Interaction design, design thinking, user interviews, ideation, storyboard, context scenarios, digital mockup, user evaluation, video prototyping.

Learning Prerequisites

Required courses

Interaction personne-système

Recommended courses

Open to students enrolled in the Master and PhD programs in IC.

Important concepts to start the course

Goal-directed design, design thinking, user needs assessment, user interviews & observation, ideation, prototyping, evaluation

Learning Outcomes

By the end of the course, the student must be able to:

  • Interview users and elicit their needs using the goal-directed design method
  • Design and implement interfaces and interactions
  • Project management : set objectives and device a plan to achieve them
  • Group work skills : discuss and identify roles, and assume those roles including leadership
  • Communication : writing and presentation skills

Teaching methods

Lectures, flipped classroom lectures, exercises, hands-on practice, case studies

 

 

Expected student activities

Participation in lectures, exercises, user interviews, ideation sessions, readings, design project, project presentation

Assessment methods

The assessments consist of three graded homework (individual) and two mini-project grading (group). However, students' individual engagement in group activities such as user interviews, ideation, prototyping, peer evaluation, etc., will also be evaluated to determine individual performance.

30% graded exercises (done in class, open notes, open book) - individual performance

20% engagement in group activities (user interviews, ideation, prototyping, peer evaluation, project presentation) - individual performance

50% project - group performance
