Course summary

This course examines the relationship between the technological push for innovation and the societal search for personal equality, quality of life and community wellbeing. Students on this programme will explore how these societal issues are addressed by technological advancement and social innovation within contemporary society. You will explore, prototype, evaluate and iterate concepts with key interactive components and in doing so, challenge the experience people have in their engagement with society and technologies itself. Students will develop an understanding of Interaction Design in complex environments and learn to analyse behavior to inform the design process. The course is ideal for students who are interested in UX design and prototyping.
