Advanced Interaction Design
This is a studio class for students who are passionate about diving deep into interaction design and honing their design skills. Introduces social computing, input & interaction techniques, and information design. Students will regularly present their work in a studio format. The class will be pretty informal, and we'll adjust things as we go. So if there's something you'd like to see, let me know! Note: As an advanced class, the assignment descriptions will be sparser and more open-ended than in an intro class. You'll need to do more work to creatively interpret the design briefs. This will be a great class for students who seek creative freedom. Students who prefer that all details be specified should not take this class.
COGS 160 is a 4-unit course, open to all students who meet two pre-reqs: (CSE 8B or CSE 11) and (Cogs 120 or CSE 170)..
Students registered for the class will receive a letter grade; the "credit/no credit" option is not available.
Students in this course are encouraged to enroll in the Design at Large seminar for 1 unit (details).
Each week, we will cover a topic in Interaction Design. For some, you will prep with a reading/video. You will complete a short design project for each. When assignments are due, please bring a print copy of your work to class.
