Distinctions between the Communication of Experiential and Academic Design Knowledge: A Linguistic Analysis

Design research has historically focused upon collocated design practices where the production of artefacts, collaboration between designers, and designers’ learning practices are geographically bounded. Information and communication technologies are rapidly transforming this territorial context of designing and making by supporting designers to share experiential knowledge with peers online. But it is unclear how experiential design knowledge should be characterized, and how it may be different from academic design knowledge. In this study, we present a mixed-methods analysis to compare experiential design knowledge communicated in two online practitioner-oriented venues and two leading design research journals. We found that the articulation of experiential academic knowledge unsurprisingly differs in multiple linguistic measurements such as patterns of word usage and language formality. However, we also found that these distinctions are not absolute; in certain instances of online argumentation, practicing designers are able to effectively discipline their language use with the purpose of articulation and accuracy. We argue for increased attention to the ways in which online discussions regarding design practices contribute to the construction of design knowledge.

Supporting Distributed Critique through
Interpretation and Sense-Making in an Online
Creative Community
YUBO KOU and COLIN M. GRAY, Purdue University
Critique is an important component of creative work in design education and practice, through which
individuals can solicit advice and obtain feedback on their work. Face-to-face critique in offline settings such
as design studios has been well-documented and theorized. However, little is known about unstructured
distributed critique in online creative communities where people share and critique each other’s work, and
how these practices might resemble or differ from studio critique. In this paper, we use mixed-methods to
examine distributed critique practices in a UX-focused online creative community on Reddit. We found that
distributed critique resembles studio critique categorically, but differs qualitatively. While studio critique
often focuses on depth, distributed critique often revolved around collective sensemaking, through which
creative workers engaged in iteratively interpreting, defining, and refining the artifact and their process. We
discuss the relationship between distributed critique and socio-technical systems and identify implications
for future research.

UX Practitioners’ Engagement with
Intermediate-Level Knowledge
Abstract
Scholars have repeatedly called for the knowledge
production efforts of the HCI research community to
have resonance with the needs of practitioners. These
efforts, reified in approaches such as “implications for
design,” annotated portfolios, and other forms of
intermediate-level knowledge have begun to take hold
within the research community, yet it is unclear if and
how these forms of knowledge are used to actually
support user experience (UX) practice. In this study,
we analyzed resources shared via URLs that pointed to
articles on external websites within a practitioner-
focused Reddit community. Using Löwgren’s taxonomy
of intermediate-level knowledge, we identified the
forms of knowledge these resources represent, and use
this analysis as a provocation for future exploration into
the types of knowledge practitioners desire and use to
support their practice.

Distinctions between the Communication of Experiential and Academic Design Knowledge: A Linguistic Analysis

  • 5. Supporting Distributed Critique through Interpretation and Sense-Making in an Online Creative Community YUBO KOU and COLIN M. GRAY, Purdue University Critique is an important component of creative work in design education and practice, through which individuals can solicit advice and obtain feedback on their work. Face-to-face critique in offline settings such as design studios has been well-documented and theorized. However, little is known about unstructured distributed critique in online creative communities where people share and critique each other’s work, and how these practices might resemble or differ from studio critique. In this paper, we use mixed-methods to examine distributed critique practices in a UX-focused online creative community on Reddit. We found that distributed critique resembles studio critique categorically, but differs qualitatively. While studio critique often focuses on depth, distributed critique often revolved around collective sensemaking, through which creative workers engaged in iteratively interpreting, defining, and refining the artifact and their process. We discuss the relationship between distributed critique and socio-technical systems and identify implications for future research. CCS Concepts: • Human-centered computing → Human computer interaction (HCI); Empirical studies in HCI KEYWORDS Distributed critique, user experience design, online creative community, practice-led research, research- practice gap ACM Reference format: 0501 2 3 4 5 UX Practitioners’ Engagement with Intermediate-Level Knowledge Abstract Scholars have repeatedly called for the knowledge production efforts of the HCI research community to have resonance with the needs of practitioners. These efforts, reified in approaches such as “implications for design,” annotated portfolios, and other forms of intermediate-level knowledge have begun to take hold within the research community, yet it is unclear if and how these forms of knowledge are used to actually support user experience (UX) practice. In this study, we analyzed resources shared via URLs that pointed to articles on external websites within a practitioner- focused Reddit community. Using Löwgren’s taxonomy of intermediate-level knowledge, we identified the forms of knowledge these resources represent, and use this analysis as a provocation for future exploration into the types of knowledge practitioners desire and use to support their practice.

 VARIABLES Analytic “a high number reflects formal, logical, and hierarchical thinking; lower numbers reflect more informal, personal, here-and-now, and narrative thinking.” Clout “a high number suggests that the author is speaking from the perspective of high expertise and is confident; low Clout numbers suggest a more tentative, humble, even anxious style.” Authentic “higher numbers are associated with a more honest, personal, and disclosing text; lower numbers suggest a more guarded, distanced form of discourse.” Analytical Thinking “a high number is associated with a more positive, upbeat style; a low number reveals greater anxiety, sadness, or hostility; a number around 50 suggests either a lack of emotionality or different levels of ambivalence.”
