Content, progress and pedagogy of the module

The project aims to create or explore an interaction. It could, for example be a man-machine interaction, a human-human interaction or human-machine-human interaction.

Learning objectives


  • Understand the fundamental aspects of the designed/examined interaction.
  • Understand the psychological concepts that are either related to or possibly can describe the designed/examined interaction.
  • Understand methods for the measurement of the designed/examined interaction influence on humans.


  • Can design a prototype which is part of/or which can be used in connection with the designed/investigated interaction.
  • Can measure on the designed/examined interaction with an aim of investigating the influence on humans.
  • Can with the relevant tools analyse the measured data from this could account for the interaction’s influence on humans.


  • Can synthesize the above information into a holistic understanding of the designed/examined the interaction and its influence on humans.


  • Design and prototype manufacture a product using knowledge of applied cognitive psychology, to improve the human’s experience of a product. The improvement of the interaction could be measured through various user experience tests where a later statistical analysis could give a concrete estimate of the interaction’s influence on the user.


  • Investigate a given interaction, in order to provide design guidelines, suggestions for improvement, or a design concept that can increase or improve the interaction’s influence on the user.
