Abstract

Responding to challenges to better understand design research practice, its contributions to knowledge production and its value to HCI, our one-day workshop critically reflects on case examples of design research practice in interdisciplinary HCI projects. We invite position papers that offer personal perspectives on ‘critical incidents’ in such projects, specifically focusing on problems, miscommunications, tensions and failures. We establish a supportive, discursive forum for constructive critical reflection, to deepen understanding about the nature and value of design practice as a form of research inquiry within HCI. The workshop also aims to develop conceptual resources for supporting design practice in interdisciplinary research.
