When looking out across the intellectual landscape of HCI, how do we make sense of it? More importantly , how do we evaluate what constitutes legitimate investigation? As an interdisciplinary field, HCI faces challenges in incorporating sometimes conflicting intellectual approaches. While new approaches enrich our view of interaction, they can also lead to(More)

Affinity diagramming is a commonly used contextual design practice for which many tools have been developed. However, experts and novices alike eschew tool use, instead using traditional paper and whiteboard methods. This paper presents observations of traditional affinity diagramming sessions, focusing on three areas of consideration—shared awareness,(More)
As the field of computer science has evolved, other subareas of CS have become part of the main CS curricula. Human-computer interaction is one such example. HCI studies all phenomena surrounding the design, evaluation, implementation and use of interactive systems. It is accepted today that computing products need to be easy to use; HCI is the subarea of(More)

Collaborative storyboarding, an emerging area of research, entails having groups of users work together to produce a sequence of user-system interactions. We conducted a study in which groups of designers were asked to construct storyboards using predetermined components. Initial analysis of the study sessions shows the emergence of a model for(More)
This paper argues that design rationale has become irrelevant by effectively ignoring the practical contexts for which it was first developed and from which it needs confirmation of its core assumptions. We identify the original and current rationale behind design rationale research and find that the two have diverged in ways that prohibit its validation(More)

Collaborative storyboarding, with a focus on aggregating designers' expertise in the storyboarding process, offers the opportunity for a group of designers to make progress toward creating a visual narrative for a new interface or technology, but it requires the designers to work together to explore ideas, differentiate between options, and construct a(More)
There are three paradigms of HCI: Human-Factors, Classical Cognitivism/Information Processing Based and the Third/Phenomenologically-Situated Paradigm. Each of these paradigms represents a world-view and encompasses a set of practices and expectations for the value and contribution of research. Each contributes to HCI, but in different ways. The first two(More)
