This July, spend your evenings in a deep exploration of interaction design at the School of Visual Arts. In addition to evening courses, the summer intensive includes tours of the most energized New York studios. Bringing together designers and doers through hands-on work and theory-based lectures, the intensive allows flexibility for students to focus on one track or all three.

- Practice of Interaction Design
- Carla Diana
This course will explore the relationship among people, products, and information through the field of Interaction Design. In a series of hands-on, studio-based exercises, students will gain exposure to critical parts of the design process while learning specific methods for human-centered concept exploration and the development of product behaviors. The course will culminate in a final project that incorporates major principles of Interaction Design and fits within the context of a larger, track-independent theme.
- Code Literacy: An Introduction to Interactive Programming
- Noa Younse
- Research Methods in Interaction Design
- Jodi Leo
The course starts from the premise that research brings fresh thinking, accelerates iteration, and is a key to great product and service design. Over four weeks, students will be introduced to the fundamentals of user research techniques for interaction designers, and get prepared to practice research with ease and confidence. Working in teams, students will gain experience in creating facilitator guides and screeners as part of a conducted final research project.
- Visualizing Information
- Hilla Katki
Data visualization can be informative, evocative, and interrogatory. In this course, students will start from a foundation of discrete data and explore new narrative and non-narrative possibilities that thoughtfully consider the relationship between form and content. Students will create a visually compelling final project that tells a more deep and meaningful story, drawing from data sources of their own chosen interest and those discovered in the process.
