Information Design for Getting Difficult Issues Across: From Trial Experiences to Education


Abstract

We present an education case that is relevant to the field of human-computer interaction, and that presents a promising method of delivering HCI education. The art and skill of designing interactive tools for delivering a complex story while engaging a non-expert audience was transferred from a high-profile international trial setting into a classroom filled with designers and technicians. Experiences in information design for a complex trial, and their implications for the education case are presented. General conclusions and recommendations are drawn for HCI education.
