Experience Design Online Short Course

Course description

In an increasingly media saturated world discover how to design events, environments, products and services that transform emotions, thoughts and behaviour. This interdisciplinary course is an introduction to the emerging discipline of experience design. You'll learn methods and techniques that can be applied across all sectors, to improve the quality of interaction and depth of engagement with audiences.

This structured course combines illustrated lectures, discussions, and short collaborative briefs to explore how experiences can be designed using images, objects, environments, stories and the senses which leave a lasting impression. At the end of the course you will have increased your knowledge and professional skills, and be inspired by the potential to incorporate these into your own work, practice or studies.
