An interface is the link between a user and a product that communicates how a product will be used, creating an experience for the people who will use it. It provides the framework, elements, and resources for a “conversation” to take place between users and products.


This is a studio/seminar class with time devoted to lecture, discussion, practice activities, design worksessions, and critique of student work.


Goals for the Course


In this course, we will explore the fundamentals of interfaces and the interaction design process. Students will be introduced to and have opportunity to practice the fundamental concepts, methods, and practices of interaction design. They will explore the ideas of “form follows function” and “be the user.” They will explore how products create experiences, and understand the role that interaction with products fulfills in human existence. Finally, students will improve their ability to present their design ideas.
