CS 247I

Design for Understanding

  • Not Offered

3 - 4 units

Letter (ABCD/NP)

Complex problems require nuanced design approaches. In this project-based hands-on course, students explore the design of systems, information and interface for human use. Each quarter we pick a different challenging topic to explore and explain; past classes have included fake news, electoral politics and gender. Students will create an explainer, an information site and a game as a response to the challenges presented. We will model the flow of interactions, data and context, and craft a design that is useful, appropriate and robust. We will also examine the ethical consequences of design decisions and explore current issues arising from unintended consequences. Prerequisite: CS 147 or equivalent.
