DEA 5520 - Virtual Experience of Designed Environments

Spring. 3 credits. Student option grading.

Prerequisite: working knowledge and experience in 3D modeling and rendering. Intended for: juniors interested in honors theses, seniors and graduate students.

S. Yoon.

This course will immerse students in advanced techniques of design communication and evaluation for simulation-based research on user experience in designed environments. Through lectures, readings, demos, and hands on exercises, the course explores advanced visualization media for design and design research.

Outcome 1: Students will demonstrate a coherent understanding of design and design research with advanced computer mediated 3D visualization technologies in the field of architecture, interior design, and user experience/interface design.

Outcome 2: Students will apply analytic knowledge from readings and discussions to critically review and evaluate existing theories in interdisciplinary areas of environment and behavior, environmental psychology, design communication and human-computer interaction.

Outcome 3: Students will brainstorm viable and innovative research topics and learn how to start and finish an experimental study from readings, lectures, demos, and discussions.

Outcome 4: Students will propose mini studies of their own based on selected experimental research frameworks and conduct preliminary user experience experiments (with as few as five subjects).

Outcome 5: Students will learn and demonstrate advanced 3D visualization skills required for experimental stimuli development.
