Summer School

Due to popular demand we will be running yet another exciting edition of the CIID Summer School in 2017 for a hands on exploration of interaction design. Join our mailing list to get news on the programme announcement.

For an overview of CIID Summer School 2016, see below:

This year we have designed a comprehensive programme with a choice of specially curated one week workshops running throughout July 2016 (4th-29th).


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 planned so that there are tangible, speculative and strategic design options.

Please note that there will be a maximum number of 20 places available for each workshop – first come first served.

We will bring you together with people from all over the world with the same drive and passion for learning, whether you are a working professional or a student, and our world-class faculty will lead the workshops. 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.

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!
