Course Structure

Lectures/Face to Face Workshops: The module is delivered in weekly sessions.

Each session comprises a mix of lectures/seminars, practical and group discussion activities. You are required to attend these sessions; failure to do so will seriously impair your capacity to complete the assessment items to a satisfactory standard. 
You will also be required to spend additional time each week reading the required course readings.


Seminar work: The seminar work is a group assignment that will be worked on in class and extended and completed in your own time. There is one compulsory checkpoint meeting for the group work that all group members must attend. For both your individual and group work you are encouraged to arrange individual meetings with the course coordinator as required.


Course materials.

All course materials will be placed in the course UniConnect Community. Information about access and registration will be provided in Week 1.

Lecture Course Description

Information Design encompasses the business and technology functions involved in the design and management of corporate information resources. The focus in this course is on the design of useful and useable digital information products and on the technologies and services to achieve this.

On completion of this course a good student will understand the range of user-centred design approaches and be able to apply them to the design of digital information products and services. Specifically students should be able to:

 

  • select and apply appropriate methods for the design, development and management of digital information products
  • take an holistic use-centred approach to information design and management that takes into account design, use and organisational requirements
  • demonstrate an understanding of relevant information design and management theory and the limitations of such theory in practice

Students will gain experience in undertaking information needs analysis and designing a digital information service.

The course is a closely integrated lecture/seminar module and students are required to complete the full module in WS2019-20
