PRESENTATION DESCRIPTION: Sketching is a well established aspect of design,
for generating and exploring ideas and alternatives. Designers of all
varieties use sketches to refine their work, and to communicate with clients
and users when words alone are not enough. Interaction designers need to
sketch not only the appearance of the artefacts being designed, but also
their behaviour--how they will be experienced in use. This talk will look at
various techniques for exploring design requirements and reflect on how the
activity of sketching can be stretched beyond pencil and paper.

A BIT ON STEPHEN: Stephen Viller is a lecturer in Interaction Design in the
School of Information Technology and Electrical Engineering at the
University of Queensland, where he is the director of the Masters in
Interaction Design. His research focuses on the design of technologies to
support social and physical interaction, and on the role that social and
physical interaction plays in the design process. His publications span
various interdisciplinary journals and conferences in the fields of Computer
Supported Cooperative Work, Interaction Design, and Human-Computer
Interaction.

DETAILS: Tuesday, 28 October, 6:30 pm at the Stamford Plaza Hotel (Pavilion
