I am senior lecturer in the Design Conceptualization and Communication group, which focusses on researching and developing tools and techniques that support (interaction) designers in the conceptual phase of the design process. Currently my main interest is in interaction design education, with a special focus on tools and techniques for interaction design educators. Keywords: design methods and – techniques, interaction design, video techniques, experience sampling.

Video for Design Fiction (2015)

In this year’s edition of Video for Designers students produced as a team of four a design fiction video, that presents a story about the envisioned use and impact of a future product or technology. The goal of the video was to stir discussion about the new concept, rather than to demonstrate its potential greatness. Students were therefore asked to take a critical stance by showing different perspectives or implications, both good and bad, that its use might have, rather then just presenting an idealized blue-sky scenario. Their stories should integrate these perspectives in an engaging, but also thought-provoking way, ideally triggering a dialogue about the pros and cons of the envision product, service or technology.


Design Fiction created by Mees Daalder, Lana Letanche, Manon Schuurman, Nard van der Werff for IO3045 Video for Designers 2015 (made for educational purposes only).
