Culture, Creativity and Interaction Design (CCID2)

Talk at CCID2 on cultivating cultural competence for interaction design research.

The lecture was given by Elisa Giaccardi at the Second International Symposium on Culture, Creativity and Interaction Design (Newcastle, July 4-5, 2011). The talk reports and reflects on the results of a teaching experiment of the Digital Living Initiative, which was conducted with senior students of Arts and Humanities at Universidad Carlos III de Madrid (UC3M). The goal of this experiment was to assess the suitability of design-futuring techniques for students with no design background and experience, and refine these techniques in preparation for the interdisciplinary Masters Program in Digital Living currently under development at UC3M. The experiment was conducted as part of the course “Humanities and Computing” during the academic years 2009–2010 and 2010–2011. Thirty students participated in the experiment as part of their required curriculum, including students from Literature, History, Media Studies, Library Sciences, Journalism, Business and Law.
