Learning objectives

After this course, students will:

  1. Be able to tackle problems dealing with human users operating in a technological context, including a thorough PACT analysis of the problem situation, formulation of research questions and/or design goals, and formulation of implications for the design of innovative light applications
  2. Be able to design, and perform, analyze and report on basic user-centered research in a scientific manner.
  3. Be able to formulate implications for design based on literature as well as their own research findings.
Content

Assignments may have a research or design orientation. Research assignments consist of an investigation and a formulation of a vision. Design assignments consist of a design exploration, prototype design, and evaluation. Whether research or design oriented, the assignments should be grounded in a basic understanding of the user, contextual, and technical requirements of innovative light applications, and involve empirical data gathering and analysis, i.e. user-research. Project assignments are formulated according to the templates provided for teachers (Template for teachers USE 3: Research project description/Design project description). Project reports are written adhering to the templates provided to students (Template for Students USE3: Research project/Design project.
Students meet with a mentor on a weekly basis. Mentors will be recruited from all groups participating in ILI, depending on the specific challenge/project.
Students present their plans at two intermediate plenary meetings. The groups write a final report and present their work at a special ILI symposium.

Short promotional description of the course
Groepen werken aan een uitdagend project geformuleerd door het ILI in samenwerking met een klant. Projecten kunnen het accent leggen op onderzoek of ontwerp maar hebben een duidelijk USE perspectief: gebaseerd op een gedegen inzicht in gebruikers en in contextuele en technische randvoorwaarden voor licht applicaties en behelzen empirische dataverzameling en analyse. Voorbeelden: Shop of the future, Tools for teaching, Shining light on task difficulty, Stress reducing light, Smart urban lighting.
Short promotional description of the course
In this module, project teams work on a challenging project formulated by the ILI and external clients. Projects may have a research or design orientation but are grounded in a basic understanding of user contextual and technical requirements of innovative light applications, and involve empirical data gathering and analysis i.e. user-research. Examples: Shop of the future, Tools for teaching, Shining light on task difficulty, Stress reducing light, Smart urban lighting.
