Tellart Workshops, Lectures, Teaching

01

As industry experts in design for emerging technologies, we are frequently called on to lead workshops, teach courses, and deliver lectures at venues worldwide. Over the last decade we have built a varied library of syllabi and lectures, on topics including Mobile Hacking & Design, Holistic Service Prototyping, Tangible Interactions, Ubiquitous Computing, Experimental GUI Design, Intro to IxD, and Cinematography.

Workshops

Our first engagement with many new clients is a workshop in the form of a Sketchtools session around a particular area of interest. We offer targeted workshops that address specific problems in a product or experience, as well as educational sessions that introduce teams to experience design and physical computing.

Tools, materials, and participant backgrounds vary with each workshop. For example, our Introduction to Interaction Design course is completely analog – no computers; just pen, paper, post-it notes, sketching, and performing. Our Sketching Ubiquitous Computing course involves mobile devices, sensors, analog and digital converters, RFID readers and tags, Wiimotes, Kinect, even household appliances.

Lectures & Teaching

Tellart employees teach courses at some of the world’s leading design schools, including the Rhode Island School of Design, Umeå Institute of Design, Copenhagen Institute for Interaction Design, and the Oslo School of Architecture and Design. Team members also lecture, publish, and lead workshops at many international conferences each year, including: O’Reilly ETech, SIGCHI, DUX, Sketching in Hardware, DEFCON, Doors of Perception, the Nordic Service Design Conference, IxDA Interaction, IDSA, AIGA, PICNIC, ISWC, the Business Innovation Factory Summit, and many more. Our workshops have taken place all over the world; from China to London to San Francisco to Delhi. Tellart also gives lectures and stages question-answer sessions directly to interested clients and agencies.

Please contact us if you would like to discuss engaging Tellart for a workshop, lecture, or course.

Over the past few years, Tellart has teamed up with Timo Arnall and Jack Schulze from BERG to teach at CIID, UID, AHO and Ogilvy & Mather.
