Sketching user experiences: Hands-on course of sketching techniques for HCI research

in Conference abstract/presentation slides

Abstract

Copyright © 2017 by the Association for Computing Machinery, Inc. (ACM). When designing novel user experiences, paper-pencil sketches can support the design thinking process and are valuable for communicating design ideas to others. This hands-on course will demonstrate how to integrate sketching into researchers' and interaction designers' everyday practice - with a focus on applying the techniques to the design of novel user experiences. Participants will learn fundamental sketching strategies, apply these in practice during many hands-on exercises, and learn the various ways of using sketches as a tool when designing interactive systems.
