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 give opportunities to in-depth knowledge through design exploration, that can be used in explorative deign practice and concept formulation. After completion of the curse, the student should be able to conceptuatlize and reflect on the following design aspects in an interactive information design:

  • User experience/ value of interactive information
  • Conceptualization of implicit and explicit interaction
  • Form and principles for form giving of interactive information (diagrams) that shows different kinds of data
  • Graphic design principles for form giving of visual messages in an interactive information design

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:

  • Explorative form giving of information visualization in an interactive information design (diagrams)
  • Design principles and their usage in graphic communication for interactive information design
  • Exploration and form giving of concepts for implicit interaction
  • Exploration and form giving of concepts for  explicit interaction (goal-driven interaction)
  • Designing, prototyping, and evaluation of an interactive information design in an explorative project
