Experiencing. Prototyping. Learning.
The aim of the Interaction Design Programme is for students, faculty and staff to work together in a multicultural, multidisciplinary studio environment to co-create a new kind of education that is relevant for academia and industry.
After a rigorous selection process, students from all around the world have been chosen to participate in a full-time, experimental version of a future Masters course in interaction design. A diverse selection of visiting faculty exposes students to a range of expertise on a fully immersive curriculum.
We believe in a hands-on and user-centred approach to interaction design and this one-year programme teaches students to apply technology to everyday life – through the design of software, products, and services.
Students are taught the programming and electronics skills needed to work with technology as a design medium and frequent work in multidisciplinary teams encourages peer-to-peer learning. User-research and experience prototyping provides real-world grounding to concepts and ideas.
Since January 2011, the Interaction Design Programme has been sponsored by Novo Nordisk, Velux and Maersk Line – and is hosted by Kolding School of Design.
The Danish Ministry of Economy and Trade, The Danish Ministry of Culture, Novo Nordisk and The Danish Design School have previously awarded financial funding for the programme. The Lauritzen Fonden sponsored technical equipment for the project it-lab.
