2006 (English)In: Proceedings of HCI Educators Workshop - Inventivity: Teaching Theory, Dsign and Innovation in HCI / [ed] E.T. Hvannberg, J.C. Reed, L. Bannon, P. Kotzé & W. Wong, University of Limerick , 2006, 81-84 p.Conference paper (Refereed)
In this paper we give a “case story” experience from development, practice and results from a method and project course on User Oriented Interaction Design. The course is intended for last year Masters’ students from different backgrounds, computer science as well as social science and design disciplines.
The course was inspired by student and teacher participation in the Apple Interface Design Project 1993, 1994 and 1995, when it was established as a regular course at three higher educational institutions in Stockholm within different faculties. From 2003 students and teachers from the course participate in the Siena Design Project.
Experience from teaching and practicing methods from HCI, e.g. Cooperative/Participatory design, industrial design, e.g. Functional Analysis, and ethnography, e.g. Contextual Inquiry, is described. Experience and results from project work with user involvement and conceptual prototypes is exemplified and discussed, especially from the perspective of multidisciplinary cooperation. Finally project evaluation criteria and lessons learnt are presented.
