There are three main components:
-Practice of information design
Practice of information design
You develop your practical abilities through projects and professional assignments that explore the issues involved in designing complex material, such as sequential actions, linear and branching sequences.
You develop your knowledge and analytical skills through lectures, seminars, directed reading, and student presentations, looking at topics such as texts and readers, methods of enquiry in information design, professional judgment and decision-making.
You choose a topic in consultation with staff that focuses on an aspect of information design, leading to a written study of between 10,000 and 13,000 words.
Teaching and learning
You are taught by Departmental staff who cover theory, practice and evaluation of design. Visiting professional designers and academics, such as Judy Delin, Ken Garland, Ole Lund, David Sless also contribute.
You are mainly taught in small groups in an informal and relaxed environment
