2019 HCI Bootcamp

The HCI Bootcamp introduces a systematic approach to interaction design, with over 20 design methods that emphasize efficient and effective collaboration as you create and reuse design resources.

This is not a programming course. Instead, students work in groups of four to design, evaluate and redesign an interactive system in the form of a video prototype that meets the needs of real users, in a real setting.

Attendance and class participation is essential. The exercises build upon each other, and all are required to complete the final project. Students will create a poster that explains the design concept and summarizes the results of the design activities, and present their idea, including a final video prototype, to an external jury.
