Experientia partner Jan-Christoph Zoels on interaction design

This Monday (29 January 2007), Experientia partner Jan-Christoph Zoels gave the opening speech during an interaction design workshop week at the Higher Institute of Integrated Product Development, Antwerp, Belgium.

During his presentation, he started from the definition (by Rogers, Sharp and Preece) that interaction design is about “creating experiences that enhance and extend the way people work, communicate and interact.” He then described the four key areas that interaction design is focusing on — human-computer interaction and interfaces; technologically mediated human to human interaction; interaction between humans and devices in contained enviroments like museums, shops and offices; and responsive architectures and spaces — and showed a large number of examples to highlight how the field of interaction design is developing.
