WORKSHOP ON

CROWD-POWERED INTERFACES FOR CREATIVE DESIGN THINKING

June 23rd, 2019 - San Diego, CA, USA

Crowdsourcing is a powerful approach for tapping into the collective insights of diverse crowds. Thus, crowdsourcing has potential to support designers in making sense of a design space. In this hands-on workshop at C&C 2019/DIS 2019, we will brainstorm and conceptualize new user interfaces and crowdsourcing systems for supporting designers in the design process. The workshop consists of developmental discussions of ideas contributed by the participants. In brainstorming and design sessions in groups, the participants will ideate new crowd-powered systems and user interfaces that support the designer's divergent and convergent thinking.

OBJECTIVES

In this workshop, we bring together scientists and practitioners interested in supporting creativity in different types of design scenarios through crowdsourcing. We invite participants to bring forward their ideas already prior to the actual workshop and, during the workshop, design novel crowd-powered applications and user interfaces supporting designers in their design process. This may happen with either simple digital design tools or traditional paper prototyping.

 

While the workshop theme focuses on creativity support through all design phases, we specifically encourage participants to think beyond the ideation phase of the design process. Doing so, we set to inspire the design of next-generation crowd-powered systems that support creativity in either a single or multiple design phases.

WORKSHOP KEY THEMES

We structure the workshop around the design process with its four key phases: Ideation, Exploration, Optimization, Reflection.

ORGANIZATION

The one-day workshop is organized as a hands-on and participant-driven hack-a-thon event.

The focus of the workshop is on creating designs and prototypes within the workshop itself.
