About

During Summer School and Winter School the Institute of Informatics of Tallinn University offers a unique 2-week Experimental Interaction Design workshop.

This workshop introduces experimental and critique based interaction design of web, mobile and specialized hardware user interfaces. Lectures will cover among other things, an introduction to the fundamentals of new media, usability, graphic design and interaction design. During the workshop student groups will build prototypes of their applications.

New Media Course

Content

During the workshop, students will be introduced to the fundamentals of new media, interaction design, pervasive, ubiquitous, multi-modal, and physical digital environments in lively hands-on workshops.

Alongside lectures and demos, students will work in small groups to design and create new media product prototypes and gain experience in a number of interaction design principles, methods, tools and environments.

By the end of the course, every student group will have achieved a working prototype of their new media creation and will be able to share and discuss them with their peers and tutors. Student project from previous years can be found here.

Participants

The main language of instruction is English, but support is also available in Estonian and Russian.

This course is suitable for all people interested in new media and no specific background is required. Some experience in graphic design and development is beneficial, but not essential. Each participant receives a diploma of completion. No specific tools are needed but participants may use their own hardware and software. The course is limited to 15 participants.
