Education Summit 23
Designing Undefined Perspectives!
Interaction design is in a state of constant and rapid transition. This may be due to the relatively young discipline, whose origins in principle go back only thirty years, or to working with rapidly evolving materials and ever new technical possibilities and challenges. Until now, the discipline has largely focused on the design of interfaces between people and devices and their experience and meaning. Now, however, the discipline is increasingly developing toward designing with hybrid physical and digital materials, the emergence of an increasingly complex and fluid ecology of digital services and hardware platforms, and the an abundance of autonomous and semi-autonomous systems that change their behavior over time. How will this change our discipline and its educational potential?
As part of Interaction Design Week 2023, we want to bring together educators, learners, practitioners, and businesses at the Education Summit to listen to inspiring talks, participate in hands-on workshops, and debate in panel discussions about the potential developments in and possible futures for our discipline. In short, we want two days full of ideas and inspiration.
The Summit's great platform to share your ideas, thoughts, experiments and methods with a wide audience of people engaged in teaching, learning, and practicing interaction design. It is also an opportunity to make new contacts and get to know a new place, if you don't know it yet: the Zurich University of the Arts, one of the leading art academies in Europe.
Design the Undefined, Undesign the Defined
Interaction23 “Design the Undefined, Undesign the Defined” is the largest conference on Interaction Design and for the first time is coming to Switzerland. Taking place from 28.02. – 03.03.23 it brings together practitioners across the globe to discuss current challenges in the field. Interaction23 asks how we can rethink processes and practices that currently drive the design of technology.
