DesFi - Considering the past to design for the future
Introducing 2nd year Interaction Design undergraduate students to my favorite topic - Design Fictions (see sample slides from todays lecture above). It sparked a thoughtful and quite hilarous discussion as we shared stories of our own histories with digital interfaces (specifically social networks)… and thoughts of possible future scenarios.
This was my last lecture in this series for this course. This year I experimented with various techniques to engage the students in a large lecture theatre to participate more vocally and critically… some things worked and others were a tad awkward… but it’s the best fun Ive had in such a formal and vast learning environment for years. A special thanks to this years cohort of Interaction and Visual Design students. I have thoroughly enjoyed your company, ideas and energy.
