Abstract
This course teaches students how to design innovative user experiences for a variety of digital platforms. The course is organized in a practice-based learning approach, and intends to give students the skills that are necessary to plan and conduct design processes, including iterative prototyping and testing. Classes will be structured around theoretical lectures as well as hands-on workshops.
