Interaction Design and User Experience

Semester one sets out to introduce the students to the importance of design practice, behavioural theory, design practice and technology know-how that is necessary for a career as interaction designer, user researcher, or head of user experience. It focuses upon the analysis, design, prototyping and evaluation of multimedia, multimodal, and multi-platform user interfaces that are easy to use and support a great user experience. Semester two, builds upon the foundations of Semester One – with more applied structure to develop the learners’ technical proficiencies and aptitudes towards creating value enhancing design solutions. The modules address a wide range of decision-making applications and factors encompassed within the modern IxD function. The students will then complete a portfolio providing the learners with an opportunity to apply their skills and knowledge gained, and apply it to a creative problem - industry driven - solving design projects.
