(Re)designing interaction design

The first calls for an interaction design role and discipline began almost 20 years ago. Now it’s time to reflect on this history and to (re)define our discipline. What has changed over the past? What should we keep and what should stop? How will we define the future?

Design decision-making processes

Supporting people in deciding has never been easy. How we design interactions influences how people decide and consequently act. Many decisions humans make are based on automatic responses. Or they are made collaboratively with non-human agencies, as machine learning systems are increasingly become part of interactive systems. What kinds of decision making processes can be shaped by technologies and by designers?  How do we affect decision making processes through our designs or our design processes?

Establishing design ethics

Designers can enable people to achieve their goals. They can constrain them by removing options that might be in their interest. And they can even trick them into doing things that are directly against their interest. Design influences every human interaction – so what are the ethical questions that arise from this power?

Creating new work experiences

The Covid pandemic gave us a chance to redefine how we organize, work and collaborate within and across organizations. We developed new, employee-centered work experiences that support flow, productivity and purposeful work. What is the role of design in these transformations?
