Workshop Series on Interaction Design

Department of Visual Communication Design is organizing a series of workshops as an introduction to interaction design in Croatia. The workshops will further promote the interdisciplinary educational approach started with the successful Convivio Summer School in Split, 2004. (http://www.umas.hr/convivio).

The second workshop was held in March 2007. The aim of this workshop was to introduce the students to user-oriented design processes and methodologies in practice. (http://dvk.com.hr/interactions)

This third workshop was held from 25th to 29th of March 2008. The topic of the workshop was "public space", and was focus on how interaction design could help to raise awareness of the importance of public space in Split both in students and in the citizens of the town.
