Summer School 2015

We have designed a comprehensive programme with a choice of specially curated one week workshops running throughout July 2015 (6th-31st).

The application process is now open!

We will bring you together with people from all over the world with the same drive and passion for learning, and our world-class faculty will lead the classes. We hope to infuse both the knowledge and enthusiasm created to encourage participants to study interaction design at a higher level or to use their new-found skills in their current practice.

The Summer School programme is ideal if you want to experience a course in interaction design to increase your knowledge about the discipline or add to your existing skills. There will be a maximum number of 20 places available for each course.

The week long workshops have been designed to be stand-alone so it is possible to participate in one week, two weeks, three weeks or all four! The programme has been designed so that there are tangible, graphical and more strategic options each week. Each one week workshop costs 5,500DKK per week (approx. 730 Euro) – this includes tuition, prototyping materials and access to the studio/workshop. We encourage people to participate in the full month – and there is a discount for those who sign up for four workshops (see this page for more details).

At CIID, we follow a ‘learning by doing’ philosophy, so previous knowledge of interaction design is not required – we are looking for a diverse group of people from a range of backgrounds who work well as a group. Prior knowledge of Arduino and/or Processing would be advantageous for some of the project work – however, an appetite for learning and willingness to cooperate in a team is more important!

CIID is located on the harbour, right in the centre of Copenhagen. It is the perfect location from which to explore the city, it’s parks and beaches over the summer. During in July we will also be hosting a number of social gatherings including a Sunday afternoon ‘meet & greet’ the day before the course starts – allowing you to get to know the other participants on your course before the official class kick-off on the Monday morning.
