Topics include understanding when to use different interfaces, modeling and representing user interaction, principles of user experience design, eliciting requirements and feedback from users, methods for designing and prototyping interfaces, and user interface evaluation. Students interested in learning the process behind building a user interface and gaining hands-on experience designing a user interface should take this course. Programming experience is unnecessary. There will be weekly assignments, readings, design labs, and UI camp (new!) as a bootcamp for design tools.

Registration is first-come-first-served up to 140 students, then apply for one of 60 additional spots by 8pm on September 9. Website:
