Values in Design for Collaborative Systems

660 views

Published on

This workshop will provide a foundation for addressing human values in the design of collaborative information systems. Participants will be introduced to the concept of values in design, discuss tools and methods for addressing values in system design, and through active engagement in a set of design challenges, gain familiarity with the opportunities and challenges for bringing a consideration of human values into the design process.

Values in Design for Collaborative Systems

  1. 1. Values in Design forCollaborative SystemsMatt Bietz |Cory Knobel | Katie PineUniversity of California, Irvineimage: Reto FetzCTS 2013 | San Diego | May 20, 2013
  2. 2. Who Are We?
  3. 3. Values in Design• Addressing human values in the designprocess• Values may be embodied in technical systemsand devices• Considering values provides benefits– Value alignment with stakeholders– Opens new design opportunities• Especially important for collaborative systems
  4. 4. Agenda13:30-18:00• Designing for People• Values in Design Icebreaker• Electronic Medical Records Stakeholders• Break: 15:30-16:00• Using Values in Design Eliciting Values• EMR Case Study Value-based Design• Wrap-upimage: Reto Fetz
  5. 5. DESIGNINGFOR PEOPLEFrom User-Centered toHuman-Centered Design
  6. 6. User-Centered Design• Understand users• Involved users indevelopment• User-centeredevaluation• Iterative process• Address the wholeuser experience• Include multipleperspectivesA process in which the needs, wants, andlimitations of end users of a product are givenextensive attention at each stage of the designprocess. (Wikipedia)From ISO 9241-210
  7. 7. Shortcomings of UCD• Defines people in functional terms– A person is more than a collection of tasks• Important to consider larger contexts ofactivities• Difficult to include non-functionalrequirements
  8. 8. People are more than Users• Holistic – not just a disembodied task or set ofcognitive process.• Social – not stand-alone organisms• Learning – People adapt and learn. Behaviorschange.• Complex – Human systems are as (or more)complex than technical systems.
  9. 9. Human-Centered Design (1)• Expand design requirements beyond the task• Design to complement human skills• Design in context• Design for change and adaptation• Embrace complexity
  10. 10. Human-Centered Design (2)• Recognize that computer systems structuresocial relationships– Respect other forms of human social organization• Recognize the limits of design• Articulate the values that are at stake– For both system audiences and designers– Whose purposes are served in the development ofthe system?
  11. 11. HCD and Collaborative Systems• Tend to bring together people from differentgroups– Reveals underlying value conflicts• Ongoing and pervasive interaction– Difficult to define boundaries of tasks– Properties of use emerge over time• Embracing this complexity in the designprocess will produce better collaborativesystems
  12. 12. VALUES IN DESIGNor more formallySocial Values in the Designof Information Systems andTechnologyconsiders human values as equaldesign inputs to technicalrequirements
  13. 13. A few examples• Geolocation andsensors• Identity and socialdesirability• Search algorithms• Games
  14. 14. When and where to consider values• Defining goals of the system• Expanding requirements analysis to include allusers who touch the system• When? From the beginning and throughoutthe lifecycle (as well as after release).
  15. 15. How to expose values• Ask where people are dissatisfied with thecurrent system. Think about whatfundamental personal needs are not beingmet?• Conduct observational studies. Watch howpeople use the currentsystem, prototypes, and the redesignedsystem. What motivates their choices andactions?
  16. 16. How to expose values (con’t)• Attach values propositions to evolving systemdesign diagrams and documentation. Whatare the values each design decision impacts?How? Learn to become comfortable talkingabout values as valid aspects of the userexperience• Include values rationale in the finaldocumentation. Make your grounded designresearch transparent.
  17. 17. Making values choices flow with thework of system design• Values in Design – starting with a set of corevalues as guiding design principles• Values-sensitive design – insertingprovocations that continually challenge designassumptions• Values Levers – recognizing when valuesdiscussions are naturally happening andmaking them do productive and creativework.
  18. 18. Case Study: An EMS Field System• Conducted by Joshua Gelman and Cory Knobel in Pittsburgh, PA
  19. 19. Activity: Icebreaker(15m)• Introduce yourselves toothers in your group• Identify a system you havedesigned, worked with, orused• Identify who this systemwas primarily built for –who was the “client” forthe design?image: Reto Fetz
  20. 20. ELECTRONICMEDICALRECORDSA Brief Overview
  21. 21. “We will make sure that every doctor’s officeand hospital in this country is using cutting edgetechnology and electronic medical records sothat we can cut red tape, prevent medicalmistakes, and help save billions of dollars eachyear.”-President Barack Obama, 12/6/2008

  23. 23. EMRs are Getting Bigger• Huge adoption– Both carrots and sticks• Huge expectations– Lower health care costs– Improve patient safety– Increase medicalknowledge• Similar to ERP systems

  32. 32. USING VALUESIN DESIGN
  33. 33. Working with Values as Design Inputs• Where can we find values articulated?– In the users– In organizations/institutions– In designers and developers– In societies– In culturesHow can we accommodate these differing values?
  34. 34. How to expose values• Ask where people are dissatisfied with thecurrent system. Think about whatfundamental personal needs are not beingmet?• Conduct observational studies. Watch howpeople use the currentsystem, prototypes, and the redesignedsystem. What motivates their choices andactions?
  35. 35. How to expose values• Attach values propositions to evolving systemdesign diagrams and documentation. Whatare the values each design decision impacts?How? Learn to become comfortable talkingabout values as valid aspects of the userexperience• Include values rationale in the finaldocumentation. Make your grounded designresearch transparent.
  36. 36. Two Research-Based Approaches• Values Provocations– Based on the Value Sensitive Design (VSD)practices developed by Batya Friedman(UW), Alan Börning (UW) and Helen Nissenbaum(NYU)• Values Levers– Based on organizational ethnography research byKatherine Shilton (UMD)
  37. 37. Values Provocations• What are the questions or provocations thatcan prompt discussions of values?• Tools such as VSD Envisioning Cards can serveas consistent reminders to consider variousaspects of human values, both individual andsocial.• How can this translate from discussion intodesign practice?
  38. 38. Values Levers• Identifies the occasions and opportunitieswithin systems and technology developmentfor design/development teams to articulatevalues embedded into built projects• Seven primary levers (to open up the “blackbox” of values discussions duringdevelopment)
  39. 39. VALUES PERSONASCreate a values-basedpersona for your assignedstakeholder.
  40. 40. Using Personas• Profiles of individuals who representstakeholder types• Can be used as a design target• Helps to ground vague design requirements ina concrete example• Typically include brief bio, goals, taskrequirements, skills, personality
  41. 41. Activity: Values Personas(30 min)• Create a value-focusedpersona for your assigned“client”• What do you think they value– At work?– At home?– In life?• Capture these values on flipchartsimage: Reto Fetz

  43. 43. EMR Design Case• From hospital fieldwork conducted by KatiePine• A brief example from a nurse’s morning• EMR use in the context of patient care• Basis of next activity – think about how thisfits or conflicts with your persona’s values
