Intended learning outcomes

Information design concerns informative messages – both facts, and values (experiences). The course interactive information design focuses on how interactivity with the visual forms of the information can be designed, but also how the interaction itself can convey information/values. The course includes interaction where the individual interacts with specific information objects (e.g. diagrams), but also situations where the individual is surrounded by information. The aim of the course is to achieve actionable knowledge, that can be used in deign practice. After completion of the curse, the student should be able to use and reflect on the following design aspects:

  • principles for interactive information
  • communication of values / experience through interactive information
  • implicit and explicit interaction
  • form for interactive information (e.g. diagrams).

Course content

The course has synergies with the advanced media production course – a possibiltiy for projects across the courses. Suggestions from course participants on other projects going across courses are also welcome. The course concerns:

  • information visualization (advanced and interactive diagrams)
  • typography and pictograms for indoors environments.
  • Implicit interaction (where a design “reacts” on human activity)
  • Explicit interaction (goal-driven by the human)
  • How prototyping and other design techniques can be used for the design of interactive information design
  • Introduction to the use of physical object for interacting with information – and to convey information, including the use of the room/space.
