User Experience and User Interface Design and Development
How do we build knowledge about computational, aesthetic, product and spatial experience? What tools and methods enable our work in the design of these interactions? This course applies methods and technologies found in the User Experience (UX) and User Interface (UI) disciplines to analyze, document, design and prototype a number of spatial and product interactions. Readings and matched contextualization writing on UI/UX design will locate student work in terms of both theory and history. Grad section: add'l written component; historical readings will be paired with a written paper contextualizing the student's term project within the theoretical framework developed through readings.
