Workshop 1: " Understanding information through filter-driven interfaces" with Karl Fast
February 23, 9:00-12:30 Uhr Search often reveals too much information. Filtering is a way to rapidly narrow a large information space. More broadly, filtering is one example of what cognitive science calls «epistemic actions»; literally, how we create knowledge, make meaning, and develop understanding by interacting with information.
This workshop will teach you how to design a filtering interface. The first part of the workshop is pragmatic and focused on screen-based filtering. The second part of the workshop expands filtering to emerging technologies and future design problems. It will introduce more epistemic interactions and explore how these apply to a world beyond screens
Workshop 2: "How to architect interactions, not only information" with Stephanie Akkaoui Hughes
February 23, 13:45-17:15 Uhr The workshop is based on Stephanie Hughes’s vision entitled «Architecting Interaction». The workshop will focus on her unique four step collaborative process based on the expertise of users and on the communal creation of knowledge. It highlights three specific focus points:
a) Designing incomplete, impermanent & imperfect
b) Extending the project after its end
c) The service we create is only as important as the quality of the interactions it fosters.
After this introduction, Hughes will share a real-life case study and guide participants through the process to analyse and design a response to the case study.
Keynote Speakers: Stephanie Akkaoui Hughes (NL) and Karl Fast (USA)
The detailed program will be released on our website in January.
