DIGITAL & PHYSICAL PROTOTYPING
The course intertwines theoretical insights, with targeted design activities, short assignments and exercises aimed at developing specific competences on how to prototype for interactive products and services, using basic technological solutions, both software and hardware.
DESIGN RESEARCH METHODS & TOOLS
The Design Research Methods & Tools course explores theories and practices within the field of creative thinking. Students learn how to acquire and manipulate the information they need to kick-start their projects.
The Tangible Interactions workshop aims at developing projects in the domains of physical computing and haptic interfaces by screening, analysing and experimenting software and hardware technology in order to develop a confidence with the palette of tools and platforms that constitute the “basis” for designing interactive solutions.
The Experience Design workshop explores, by way of studio-based activities, the designing process from the point of view of the people (not users, neither consumers) in their day to day life context.
