This exhibition provided insight into the Interactive & Visual Design (IVD) unit, which will be re-launched in 2019 as a separate Interaction Design (IxD) degree. In preparation, unit developments have been tested to situate the new degree with embedded industry engagement and student entrepreneurship opportunity.
This exhibition presents an example of three current IVD units that were engaged with industry partners for assessment driven outcomes. The experience gained by the students includes understanding industry operation, collaboration with partners, and interdisciplinary and transdisciplinary practices. As too, development of high-fidelity prototype production and presentation of work as ‘Kickstarter’ style videos, for valued industry and start-up opportunity.
