Lecture 1: Interactive systems and Design

  • Lupton, D. (2018). Towards design sociology. Sociology Compass, 12(1), 1–11.
  • Fallman, D. (2008). The Interaction Design Research Triangle of Design Practice, Design Studies, and Design Exploration. Design Issues, 24(3), 4–18.

Assigment: brief reflective text (~one page) on the two assigned texts, highlighting key insights. Try to speak in terms of your own discipline or research question, use at least three canonical references to your own dicipline; this can be contrasting, finding similarities or suggesting new directions.

Lecture 2: Prototyping

  • Houde, S., & Hill, C. (1997). What do Prototypes Prototype? In Handbook of Human-Computer Interaction (pp. 367–381). Elsevier.

Assigment: Write a brief (~half page) summary of a key concept and research questions emerging from your own discipline. Continue to write (~half page) how the phenomena could be seen in Facebook/Twitter or other digital platform of your choice.

Based on this, do

  1. a storyboard how the phenomena might be visible
  2. an user interface sketch that helps to answer the research question
