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 Stephanie’s vision is to design spaces that foster three forms of interaction: creativity, collaboration and learning. Her process takes the expertise of users into account and promotes the communal creation of knowledge. Many of Stephanie’s tools work similarly to those in service design, but they highlight her own approach. This particularly means focussing on stimulating interaction and on designing incomplete, impermanent & imperfect outputs, thus extending the process beyond the project.
After an introduction, Stephanie 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)
