This workshop provides attendees with an understanding of user-centred design and improved interaction design skills via a combination of theory and engaging activities. Real world examples and practical activities are used to reinforce theory.Attendees will work throughout the day on a group design project. After discussing user research principles, they will choose appropriate methods for their project, undertake some user research and prepare scenarios. We will discuss fundamental interaction design priniciples using examples and group critiques; and will discuss the value and practice of prototyping. Attendees will then design a detailed paper prototype of a small system.
