IXDGR-6500: IxD Studio: Story

Course Description

While one way to look at Interaction Design is as the construction of tools, another way is as the construction of stories - stories that people, live, co-create and inhabit. Through the Story course, students will become well-versed in narrative and its fundamental role in temporal design, and communication in the creation of interactions. This studio will explore storytelling and sense-making, through visual and narrative presentation and communication, improv and performance, storyboarding, and personas. Close examinations of traditional crafted story experiences, such as novels, cinema, comics, TV shows, and plays will form the foundation for investigations into new forms of interactivity. In addition to storytelling skills, the course is also designed to cultivate the hand, heart and head skills required for creating cultural narratives. Students will create their own communication pieces and interactive pieces, with the goal of designing communications and systems that move toward the development of collaborative and participatory story experiences.
