I excited to have been invited to teach a Slow Interaction Studio Master Class at the EPSRC Digital Economy Network Summer School hosted at Newcastle University in mid July.
This studio-based class will begin with an introduction to slow interaction design by describing its historical origins and reviewing a portfolio of design projects that exemplify it. This will set the stage for the main part of the studio: putting slow interaction design into practice by developing, prototyping, and pitching a novel design concept in response to a design brief. A range of topics (e.g., digital data overload, (over)connectivity, (over)consumption, etc.) will characterize design briefs that students in small teams will conceptualize and prototype responses to. The studio will conclude with critiques of the design concepts and with a reflection on the challenges and opportunities in applying slow interaction design in one’s own research and design practice.
