Designing People Centered Experiences II

Course Overview

This course is a combination of two Herron courses: Design for Interaction: Object and Place II (Ganci) and Designing people-centered Service Experiences II (Hong). 

This course asks senior VCD students to reflect upon and utilize the sum of their acquired skills in a final, experience design thesis project. Each student will work with real people to identify a problem and craft a solution using the principles of either Interaction Design (IXD) or Service Design. The content, process, and focus of the projects will be determined by each student. The output of this course will facilitate a series of evaluation and presentation venues at the end of the semester.
