FIT GD243: Non-linear Narrative

This was the first assignment: the students could use any sort of HTML they could muster (including deprecated tags and hackery) in order to construct a non-linear narrative. This assignment was originally conceived by CJ Yeh who led that part of the department and I have to say it completely opened me up to a new way of thinking about teaching interaction design. I had been teaching web design in a rote way before, just covering the basics without revealing the adventure and joy of it all. I refined the lesson to suit my style, but honestly, the students just owned this, they completely dove in.

How to Become a Better Designer

I was asked to give a talk to a student group at FIT entitled How to Become a Better Designer (with a Little User Experience). In order to enliven the material, I used a bunch of cat photos I found on the internet. Entire Presentation
