BEYOND WIREFRAMES AND BEHAVIORS:
Public and Participatory Interaction Design

Socially responsible design has become a catch-phrase in the design
community. But what is the role of interaction design in working
towards "socially responsible" ends such as advocacy, technology
literacy, and sustainability? When considering socially responsible
design, is there a possibility for interaction design to be about
something more than the useable and desirable, and can interaction
designers do more than create wireframes and specify behaviors? In
this presentation I'll draw from examples of recent work to
challenge us to consider how interaction design can be thought about
as a public and participatory practice, committed to social
engagement and change.

SCHEDULE
6pm -- Socializing and Networking
7pm -- Talk

Refreshments and pre-talk snacks provided by Macquarium.

LOCATION
Macquarium
