(:nl:)!!MPICT Faculty Development Week

'''Description'''

This hands-on workshop introduces participants to the core principles and foundations of interaction design, information design, and user experience design. We will interleave discussions of user interface design principles with hands-on design exercises crafted to clarify, illustrate, and elucidate the principles. We will explore how to apply the design principles for the web, tablets, smartphones, and other devices (e.g., watches, televisions, and kiosks). This seminar also introduces the basics of Responsive Web Design (RWD), an important technique for designing digital experiences that span all screens regardless of size. Participants will be able to utilize these design principles and exercises to create their own curricula and engage their students in active learning through hands-on, practical experience.

'''Activities'''

During the hands-on labs, participants will form project teams and collaborate as well as work independently to apply design principles to selected user interface and user design problems. Teams will collaborate to identify and define possible solutions, then individuals will design and describe their selected direction.

'''Objectives'''

At the completion of this workshop participants will be able to:

* Understand the unique design challenges for web, mobile, touch, and other devices. * Identify, describe, and define user interface and workflow problems for the web and mobile devices. * Identify and apply design patterns or generate new designs to solve user interface and workflow problems. * Create design documents to illustrate the proposed solution. * Document and convey the interactivity, flow, and logic of the proposed solution. * Apply foundational design principles in the proposed solutions. * Present design solutions using a narrative method. * Explain the rationale behind interface design decisions. * Offer constructive criticism and feedback on design solutions proposed by team members. * Create task lists, scenarios, and simple prototypes to evaluate the efficacy or proposed design solutions.

'''Pre-Requisites and Materials Requirements'''

No prior web design experience is required. Familiarity will common digital design tools is preferred. Bring Pen and paper (for sketching), a USB drive (if you would like to take your project files with you), a smartphone and/or tablet device to view existing web sites or apps or to preview project design documents or prototypes.

The Old Oakland Farmers' Market (OOFM) wants to attract more customers, and recent customer surveys and interviews reveal their customers' primary needs are:
