Interaction 18 Recap

Congratulations to the team who put together an inclusive conference at Interaction 18. For those who weren’t able to make it to France in person, all the talks are now available online!

Our faculty member Jonathan Lewis presented a talk on “35 million dollars in 30 seconds – Designing a cryptocurrency”. It explores the role of design when creating opportunities to leverage blockchain technology, a space many are saying is the most disruptive technology since the internet.

Another faculty member Richard Anderson presented at the Education Summit where he continued to ask “Is it Ethical for Designers to Function as Activists When Practicing Their Profession? If So, When? If So, How?” Read the recap and the full presentation here.

Adam Chasen participated in the Student Design Challenge where nine finalists were tasked to design an interactive way to teach rhythm to a student with a mobile impairment disability using Microsoft’s Inclusive Design toolkit. When he returned, Adam reflected on his experiences and shared his thoughts on what having an inclusive design mindset can offer teachers.

We’re looking forward to Interaction 19 in Seattle already!
