Theorie 2.2 VIAD: Design Methodologie 

This course proposes to investigate the methods of interaction design and the challenges they pose, with a particular focus on human-centred design. With notions of cultural contexts, historical overviews, and case studies, we’ll discuss the foundations of interaction design methods and their evolution. During the overlap with the Interaction Design process course, some of these concepts will be put into practice.
