In the Service Design Course Showcase, 10 teams will share services designed to mitigate the climate catastrophe. Come learn about services for circular systems, recycled water, food waste, composting, and more. Teams will share their process and methods learned in this course and provide an overview of what value their proposed services may offer.


MONDAY, DEC. 5

User-Centered Design (HCDE 518)

When: 6 - 9 p.m.
Where: Sieg Building, second & fourth floor hallways

In HCDE’s Intro to User Centered Design course, first-year graduate students completed a full design process including user research, ideation, prototyping, and evaluation. Teams from all four sections of HCDE 518 will present their User Centered Design Projects. Each team will prepare a short video demonstrating their project, which will be shown in Sieg 232 and 233. Teams will also set up booths on the 2nd and 4th floors for further conversations. Information about remote participation will be shared on Dec. 5. 


TUESDAY, DEC. 6

Entanglement Methods: Mapping Ethical Relations and Responsibilities with a Local Community Science Program (Directed Research Group)

When: 4 - 5 p.m.
Where: Zoom
Instructors: Michael Beach & Kristin Dew

Save to your calendar

Meet the students from the ENTANGLEMENT METHODS DRG in our Open Gallery Showcase as we present 7 prototypes designed to help practitioners map and trace accountabilities, responsibilities, and ethical encounters. Through deep engagement with entanglement theory, we develop practices of design and mattering that move beyond user-centered design – aiming to support a better understanding of the complexity of more-than-human relations in devastated landscapes. We partner with Forest Health Watch, a local community science program that collects data about the declining western redcedar, a critical organism in PNW forests, vulnerable to changes in climate.


TUESDAY, DEC. 6

Programming Concepts (HCDE 524)

When: 6 - 8 p.m.
Where: Sieg Building, room 233
Instructors: Andy Davidson

Join HCDE for a two-night showcase for HCDE's Programming Concepts course. Students created interactive and animated applications in this introduction to programming course for folks with no prior coding experience. They will be demonstrating their very creative final projects, which were developed in the Processing environment, using JavaScript (p5js.org).


WEDNESDAY, DEC. 7

UX Prototyping (HCDE 451)

When: 3 - 4:30 p.m.
Where: Madrona Hall, room 311
