PURPOSE
The purpose of the project module is to introduce interaction design and create a foundation for the formation of identity as an interaction designer. Emphasis is placed on working with the interactive conditions (computer science) and design conditions (industrial design) of a concrete interactive product, where the focus is on interaction and design, partly as separate properties of the product, but also with a focus on the interaction between these two properties. In the project module, emphasis is placed on a descriptive and explanatory approach, where the interactive product is described and explained in relation to its interaction design. Each project group must choose a specific interactive product based on the project presentation on the module. Emphasis is also placed on the students being able to motivate and explain their choice of product as an example of an interaction design.
