In Fall 2016, I am teaching first-year graduate students human centered design as part of the MFA Interactive Media core curriculum. The CIM 643 class was once called Designing for Interactivity, but we are refocusing it to Human Centered Design (HCD) to ensure students are prepared to create innovative solutions from the perspective of users.
This is also the first semester we have PhD students mixed in with our MFA students, which is awesome. They are getting exposed to hands-on design thinking and creating to go along with the theory and research! Welcome to 2016-17 at the U!
