2018/2019

Prerequisite/Recommended prerequisite for participation in the module

BSc in Medialogy or equivalent

Content, progress and pedagogy of the module

Objectives:

Investigate the chosen specialisation from a formal perspective, with a focus on one or more of the following: 1) exploiting the possibilities and/or limitations offered by the perceptual system, 2) exploring the functioning of a particular cognitive process, 3) constructing an application or a part of an application in the chosen specialisation, or 4) analyzing and evaluating the developed application demonstrating how it supports, relies on, or exploits specific modalities or features of the perceptual system.

Additionally, students are required to work according to a scientific method and to report results in scientific forms, such as papers and posters.

Learning objectives

  • Must be able to understand and distinguish participatory and ethnographic design approaches

  • Must be able to understand and distinguish between methods for assessing the quality of a design solution

  • Must be able to analyse central issues relating to human perception and cognition and their relevance for interaction design

Skills

Students who complete the module will gain the following qualifications:

  • Must be able to analyse and compare the state of the art in human centred interaction design

  • Must be able to apply participatory or ethnographic design approaches

  • Must be able to apply scientific methods for assessing the quality of their design solution

  • Must be able to synthesize an interactive system based on a design solution

Competences

Students who complete the module will gain the following qualifications:

  • Must be able to analyse a real world problem, design a solution and translate it into a human centred interactive system
