Learning outcomes

After completing this module successfully you will have an extended fundamental knowledge of the hard- and software for interaction design, especially in various spatial input and output situations. You will have tested this systematically on syntactic models and made prototypes. In the course of the seminar/workshop week you will have tested your basic knowledge in an interdisciplinary situation.

Module content

– Studies of the various programming languages and media technologies, especially tactile and spatial input and output procedures.
– Theoretical studies and practical research on the design potentials in spatial and temporal viewing models.
- Seminars in the theory of design and planning methods.
