Course Brief

This course examines the notion of ‘interaction with technology’ with a focus on the design concepts of modern user experience design and production. It begins with a grounding in the specification, design, prototyping and evaluation of advanced interactive systems, with an introduction to human– computer interaction (HCI) and a short history of the field. An overview of design approaches follows. Human/user attributes and requirements, and interaction paradigms looks at the human in HCI and available types of interaction. Usability requirements/ usability engineering are discussed in the context of a number of specific design approaches and techniques, requirements and issues. Design guidelines and standards, accessibility requirements, and issues involved in designing for specific populations (globalisation and internationalism) follows. Finally, information on current interaction design questions and approaches for new and emerging technologies and paradigms provides an exposition of real-world applications and sectors where interaction design is relevant.
