Overview of Interaction design

In the fast-paced world of new media, gadgets, devices and integrated systems, the role of the interaction designer is critical as it facilitates the user to become comfortable and integrated with multiple interfaces. Interaction design is as much about technology and software skills, as it is about human centred design and the goal of the field is to facilitate the interaction between users and technology. Here, the definition of technology encompasses both material and immaterial identities. At The Design Village, the Interaction Design programme considers multi-facets of the field making TDV amongst the best Interaction Design colleges in Delhi.

How We Teach

The pedagogy at The Design Village is driven by intrinsic motivation, personal responsibility of the students and lifetime learning attitude, all of which is held together by support of facilitators. The journey of a student is based on the learning manifesto of each student and the itinerary chalked out to achieve it and hence the journey undertaken by every design villager at TDV is unique, and bespoke and it does not have to cease at the end of four years.

Although the journey is individual, the villager is not alone. There is a support system of relevant people, to assist the villagers at every junction.

Each villager charters their own personal learning path. This path is custom made for them with a great mix and match of experiences, projects and tools through three streams of interrelated activities:

  • Taskbox:It includes design problems of various scales and durations derived from real-life situations.
  • Basket:It is a cluster of courses characterized by a common theme, discipline or learning objective.
  • Villaging:It consists of the activities for personal development, with the goal to build the TDV community and oneself.

The pedagogy makes TDV a unique and the best institute for interior design in Noida and Delhi.
