Check out a related Workshop @ NordiCHI2012

One of our workshop participant, Aaron Houssian, is organizing a related workshop on “Crossing Boundaries: Exploring what Design can do” at the NordiCHI2012 conference in Copenhagen, Denmark. This workshop will be a hands-on two day workshop (October 13th & 14th 2012) that is aimed at gathering practitioners and researchers together to work out how to design better ways to cross boundaries. A research through design approach is followed. This is a great opportunity to further discuss the topics emerged in our “Message in the Bottle” Workshop.

Share your Message – get involved!

This workshop aims to identify and improve current strategies and practices for transferring knowledge from qualitative user studies to inspire an experience-centered design process. The message (e.g., qualitative user study results) can be skewed when passed on from one phase to another in the design and development process. Moreover, the way insights are communicated is often not inspiring enough.

We intend to get practitioners and academics engaged in a discussion about how to best transfer research findings of especially qualitative user studies and prevent loss of valuable information. Best practices, failure and success stories are especially welcomed as contributions. At the end of this workshop we will have identified strengths of a few methods, tools, and techniques selected from examples of best practices, and summarized limitations and challenges of knowledge transfer and communication practices within experience-centered design.

We encourage everyone interested in this topic to have a look at the other pages and to get involved by submitting your position statement to our workshop. If you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to get in touch with us via marianna.obrist [at] ncl.ac.uk

We are looking forwards seeing you in Newcastle, UK!
Marianna, Daniela, Petra, Elke, Elizabeth, Jettie
