1 Upon completion of this course, the student will be able to :
·         AA1: Describe the SCRUM and UCD methods
·         AA2: Explain the integration of SCRUM and UCD by illustrating different situations throughout the lifecycle of a project (phase, level of effort, deliverables, etc.)
·         AA3: Apply UCD methods and techniques that support the design and evaluation of interactive systems within project development
·         AA4: Analyze and compare several deliverables (e.g. two prototypes), and choose the most efficient by justifying their choice
·         AA5: Plan and evaluate development activities, and propose solutions that iteratively improve the digital strategy
Project management processes: plan, execute, analyze
Formal development methods: user-centered design, agile method
Project life cycle: needs analysis, design and evaluation 
Design thinking, creative problem solving
Teaching methods
The pedagogical approach is blended teaching, which alternates face-to-face classroom teaching with online distance learning via Microsoft Teams. The distribution between face-to-face and distance learning is adapted according to the health situation and mobility conditions. For example, in case of strike (TEC, SNCB), the sessions are held remotely. Moreover, some sessions are replaced by autonomous work activities, carried out individually (e.g. making a summary) or in groups (e.g. recording a PowerPoint slide show with narration and slide timings).
The teaching methods are flipped classroom and project-based teaching:
  • Flipped classroom: students study the material at home and then meet their teacher and peers in a classroom to ask questions and get additional help or to work with their peers;
  • Project-based teaching: students develop a project by combining online learning and face-to-face meetings.
Evaluation methods
Continuous assessment without examination in January. The evaluation includes three modes: individual assignments, group assignments and knowledge tests. Each mode represents 33.33% of the final grade. 
September session: individual custom assignement due the first day of the session.
Other information
All relevant information regarding these modalities and the progress of the activities (calendar, detailed instructions, evaluation criteria, etc.) are presented during the first session and are available on the Student-Corner.
Some resources (e.g. bibliographic resources, slides, explanatory videos) are in English.
Online resources
Student-Corner (asynchronous): course slides, bibliographic resources, calendar, models and rubrics, H5P exercises, tests, assignments, workshops with peer assessment, group choice, Q&A forum
Microsoft Teams (live): calendar, meetings, documents, discussion, lecture notes
Web links: how-to videos, websites, online software
