Maks. antal deltagere:80 
Formelle forudsætninger:Faget er kun for studerende indskrevet på kandidaten i Digital Design og Kommunikation. 
Læringsmål:After the course the student should be able to:
• Conduct exploratory interaction design projects and perform user¬oriented, grounded study of application contexts
• Select, combine, apply and compare a number of theories and methods for idea generation, data collection, data analysis, design and evaluation of the relevance of the planning and execution of interaction design projects
• Present and prototype interaction design concepts (or part thereof) using appropriate materials, tools and techniques
• Reflect on both practical and theoretical aspects of interaction design and the design process 
Fagligt indhold:The course prepares the student to carry out exploratory interaction design projects where a clear design problem is not well defined. Through project work, students will use a variety of theories and methods for idea generation, data collection, data analysis, design, prototyping and evaluation. Moreover, students will design with sensitivity to the problem context and with regard to contemporary issues in the field of interaction design research. 
Læringsaktiviteter:14 ugers undervisning bestående af forelæsninger, øvelser og vejledning

• Lectures by instructors and guest lectures, where theories and methods are presented and discussed
• Group work on design project and related activities
• Critique sessions with participation by peers and teaching staff
• Workshops on practical skills required for project development

In connection with the course, there is also the following assignments and presentations:
• Students participate in critique sessions
• Groups present their design project in the form of video, prototype and presentation
• Groups submit a report on their design project 

Obligatoriske aktivititer:In this course, students must complete mandatory activities (eg participation, assignments, exercises, critiques, production and presentation of project) in order to be prepared for the exam and be able to submit written work for the exam. If activities are not conducted you will not be able to participate in the exam.
