This paper describes an interaction design course that combines the flexibility and self-direction of an independent project with the cooperative learning and social constructivism of the design studio. A small group of second-year interaction design students created a course curriculum in which each week they shared a design challenge, yet individually selected tools, artifacts, and approaches to respond. Through crit sessions, they gave and received feedback, and revised their designs for inclusion and reflection in a design workbook, with the goal of increasing skill and knowledge and producing portfolio-quality designs. This paper elaborates on the process of creating and managing the course, as well as reflections on its effectiveness for student development, recommending the approach for other interaction design students.

Nyckelord: Cooperative learning, curriculum design, design and evaluation methods, living curriculum, interaction design, participatory design, peer review, rapid prototyping, social constructivism, studio approach
