Learning objectives

Gain a basic insight in the complexity of problems pertaining to human users operating in technological contexts; Acquire knowledge in two of the following domains:

  • pathways of light perception and light’s impact on human functioning - measuring & understanding consumers' reactions
  • tools for measurement and characterization of a visual climate
  • interaction of people with intelligent lighting systems
  • business models for value creation in complex multi-stakeholder situations;
  • Become acquainted with methodologies for studying user experience and user interaction in technological contexts;
Content
Students individually select two of the modules offered in this course (see below). Each module lasts four weeks and combines domain knowledge with relevant methodological knowledge. The educational format of the modules varies, but generally consists of a mix of lectures, assignments, and workshops.
Each year, various modules are offered, such as:
  • The basis of light perception and experience - introduces students to the physiology, neurology and psychology of light perception and discuss light’s impact on biological and psychological functioning.
  • The appraisal of light: Measuring & understanding consumers' reactions - students familiarize themselves with the prime psychological determinants of satisfaction and purchasing behaviour, and, through both theory and hands-on-experience, learn two typical methods of assessing people’s reactions to lighting technologies: Surveys and paired comparisons.
  • Sensory design - In this module the emphasis will be on the translation of our sensory system (visual) into a qualitative tool for measurement and characterization of a visual climate.
  • Interaction Design for Intelligent Lighting - In this module, we will address form, function and insight of the interaction of people with intelligent lighting systems by studying relevant theory that will be linked to concrete examples of lighting designs.
  • Business aspects of Intelligent Lighting Solutions - This module will explore what value means for the different stakeholders and how a business model can be created that creates sustainable economical and social value for all the relevant parties.
Additional test information:
Module exams are scheduled in week 4 and 8; Re-take of the exam for missed modules is scheduled in the exam week of Q3  (so in the same quartile). Each module is assessed with a final exam or assignment. Jointly these make up the final exam.  In view of the length of the modules, no formal interim test is offered per module. Students in lecture-based modules receive a practice exam in the third week and discuss this in class; students in project-based modules receive feedback on their progress in the weekly or bi-weekly meetings.

Short promotional description of the course
In this quartile of the Secret Life of Light we offer more in-depth knowledge in two modules of your choice. Modules give students a more thorough understanding of the user, societal issues, or entrepreneurship in the domain of light & lighting. All the modules run twice: in weeks 1-4 and weeks 5-8. Students select two modules from the set that is offered.
