  1. 1. AARHUS UNIVERSITY 17 OCTOBER 2010 OMUE @!NORDICHI ‘10 FROM WORKSHOPS TO WALKSHOPS MATTHIAS KORN & PÄR-OLA ZANDER 12010omue
  2. 2. FROM WORKSHOPS TO WALKSHOPS MATTHIAS KORN AARHUS UNIVERSITY 17 OCTOBER 2010 OMUE @!NORDICHI ‘10 AARHUS UNIVERSITY IN SITU CO-DESIGN AND EVALUATION ›  Observing use “in the wild” ›  Observing sense-making processes of the users ›  More severe di"erences with situated mobile use ›  Walkshops enable the study of context paired with the micro-processes of sense-making ! Walking as a tool for thinking & closer relation to the context of use ! Complementary method for early on in the design process 2
  3. 3. FROM WORKSHOPS TO WALKSHOPS MATTHIAS KORN AARHUS UNIVERSITY 17 OCTOBER 2010 OMUE @!NORDICHI ‘10 AARHUS UNIVERSITY AGENDA ›  Motivation ›  Setting and Prototype ›  Issues with Traditional PD Activities ›  Walkshops: Theory and Practice ›  Conclusion 3
  4. 4. FROM WORKSHOPS TO WALKSHOPS MATTHIAS KORN AARHUS UNIVERSITY 17 OCTOBER 2010 OMUE @!NORDICHI ‘10 AARHUS UNIVERSITY MOBILE DEMOCRACY ›  Mobile application to engage citizen participation in municipal planning ›  Citizens can suggest changes to the plan or react to proposed changes ›  Location-aware notifications ›  Mobile app to take first steps while in the situation ›  Desktop interface for reflection and deeper engagement at home 4
  5. 5. FROM WORKSHOPS TO WALKSHOPS MATTHIAS KORN AARHUS UNIVERSITY 17 OCTOBER 2010 OMUE @!NORDICHI ‘10 AARHUS UNIVERSITY PARTICIPATORY DESIGN PROCESS ›  Involving a municipality, community-based organizations, and individual citizens 5 Activities: ›  Moderated group discussions between users and designers ›  Experience-based workshops ›  Future workshops ›  Pluralistic & cognitive walkthroughs Design artifacts: ›  Scenarios ›  Storyboards ›  Paper mock-ups ›  Functional prototypes
  6. 6. FROM WORKSHOPS TO WALKSHOPS MATTHIAS KORN AARHUS UNIVERSITY 17 OCTOBER 2010 OMUE @!NORDICHI ‘10 AARHUS UNIVERSITY ISSUES WITH TRADITIONAL PD ACTIVITIES ›  Limitations to user exploration ›  Limiting confines of the room ›  Location-dependant functionality staged ›  Shortage of objects to interact with ›  Not a"ording flexibility in discussions ›  Formal meeting room atmosphere ›  Time and stress constraints on the user unrealistic 6
  7. 7. FROM WORKSHOPS TO WALKSHOPS MATTHIAS KORN AARHUS UNIVERSITY 17 OCTOBER 2010 OMUE @!NORDICHI ‘10 AARHUS UNIVERSITY WALKSHOPS 7 ›  Co-design & evaluation in more realistic and natural settings ›  while still being able to gain insights into users’ sense-making processes ›  Walking (as in going for a walk) as a thinking tool that stimulates reflection ›  Focus on understanding the mediating technology, not the environment it is used in ! Bringing the evaluation into the context, rather than the user’s context into the evaluation situation
  8. 8. FROM WORKSHOPS TO WALKSHOPS MATTHIAS KORN AARHUS UNIVERSITY 17 OCTOBER 2010 OMUE @!NORDICHI ‘10 AARHUS UNIVERSITY “THE RHYTHM OF WALKING GENERATES A RHYTHM OF THINKING” (Solnit 2001 in Anderson 2004, p. 258) 9
  9. 9. FROM WORKSHOPS TO WALKSHOPS MATTHIAS KORN AARHUS UNIVERSITY 17 OCTOBER 2010 OMUE @!NORDICHI ‘10 AARHUS UNIVERSITY WALKSHOP STUDY 10 ›  3 walkshops at di"erent stages ›  With 3 planners from the municipality: location- dependent notification of topics, topic details, map ›  With 4 individual citizens: re-design, also create topics (w/ photos), augmented reality view ›  With 6 planners and others from the municipality: more polished prototype, mood ›  Integrated into user workshops ›  45mins, ca. 1km in a 3-hour workshop ›  Short briefing and follow-up discussion ›  Researchers in the roles of facilitators, observers, and partners
  10. 10. FROM WORKSHOPS TO WALKSHOPS MATTHIAS KORN AARHUS UNIVERSITY 17 OCTOBER 2010 OMUE @!NORDICHI ‘10 AARHUS UNIVERSITY NEW INSIGHTS AND STRENGTHS ›  Usability problems previously unidentified (e.g. data input under stress) ›  How and to what extent the system can be used “in the wild” ›  Type and quality of content being created ›  Interacting with real-world objects and issues ›  Real environments provide more graspable stimuli to fuel users’ imagination ›  More elaborate discussions and reflections on actual and envisioned use ›  A"orded flexible and frequent reconfigurations of usage and discussions situations ›  Location and other context variables can be incorporated more easily 11
  11. 11. FROM WORKSHOPS TO WALKSHOPS MATTHIAS KORN AARHUS UNIVERSITY 17 OCTOBER 2010 OMUE @!NORDICHI ‘10 AARHUS UNIVERSITY CONCLUSION ›  Walkshops enable the study of context paired with the micro-processes of sense-making ›  Walking as a tool for thinking & closer relation to the context of use ! Complementary method to other participatory design activities 12 Advantages: ›  informal, more realistic stress constraints, flexible reconfiguration, exploration, real stimuli and real- world objects to interact with, user engagement Limitations: ›  stage in the design process, functionality, accessibility, design artifacts that can be used, realism, scalability
