Human-Computer Interaction In Education: Keyword And Discipline Network In 20 Years, Yongyeon Cho, Huiwon Lim, Hye Jeong Park 2021 Iowa State University

Human-Computer Interaction In Education: Keyword And Discipline Network In 20 Years, Yongyeon Cho, Huiwon Lim, Hye Jeong Park

Interior Design Conference Proceedings, Presentations and Posters

Human-Computer Interaction (HCI) education covers diverse human-oriented design approaches, which are Human Factors (HF), Human-Centered Design (HCD), User-Centered Design (UCD), and User Experiences (UX) [5]. However, the relationships among those approaches are unclear. To better understand and develop HCI pedagogy, understanding which approach is more involved than another and how it is associated with each other within HCI is significant. Therefore, the purpose of this research is to identify the relationship to the four human-oriented design approaches using the keyword network analysis method to answer the following questions: 1) What descriptors, author-chosen subject headings, related to HCI, HF, HCD, UCD ...


Space-Praxis: Towards A Feminist Politics Of Design, Mary C. Overholt 2021 Yale University

Space-Praxis: Towards A Feminist Politics Of Design, Mary C. Overholt

Masters of Environmental Design Theses

Outside of the academy and professionalized practice, design has long been central to the production of feminist, political projects. Taking what I have termed space-praxis as its central analytic, this project explores a suite of feminist interventions into the built environment—ranging from the late 1960s to present day.

Formulated in response to Michel de Certeau’s theory of spatial practices, space-praxis collapses formerly bifurcated definitions of ‘tactic’/‘strategy’ and ‘theory’/‘practice.’ It gestures towards those unruly, situated undertakings that are embedded in an ever-evolving, liberative politics. In turning outwards, away from the so-called masters of architecture, this thesis orients ...

Results from the current student’s surveys and from interviews of student/staff members on campus allowed the team to create the most functional plan. Researching current trends and amenities offered at campuses across the country ...


Covid-10, Healthcare Interior Design + Provider Experience - How Does Your Space Work For You?, Ruth E.P. Deibler 2021 Virginia Commonwealth University

Covid-10, Healthcare Interior Design + Provider Experience - How Does Your Space Work For You?, Ruth E.P. Deibler

Graduate Research Posters

The lack of research on healthcare staff experience and interior design of the spaces they work in is evident. A focus on staff perspective is needed, particularly staff who navigated the COVID-19 pandemic. This research seeks to capture those stories to develop further research in order to improve staff experience. The initial phase of this mixed-methods approach is a survey. Hypothetically, by placing providers at the center of qualitative research related to healthcare interior design, we can better understand existing healthcare spaces. Ideally, we can develop additional evidence-based, human-centered solutions to transform interior environments in healthcare.

The 20-year Women’s ...


Humanizing Architecture: A Polymorphic Space, Nada Abbara 2021 Virginia Commonwealth University

Humanizing Architecture: A Polymorphic Space, Nada Abbara

Theses and Dissertations

The built environments in which our communities thrive constitute an integral part of human experience and evolution. Yet, many places are detached from the way we experience them due to mass-production, which often produces standardized environments, and due to the tendency of modern architecture to delineate spaces as static objects rather than dynamic interactions. Thus, there is an emerging need to humanize architecture through an interdisciplinary approach that engages nature’s behavioral patterns. The project proposes a transformable polyhedral structure that interacts with human emotion through a three-dimensional morphing space that contracts and expands. This spatial interaction is achieved through ...


Kaleidoscope Wellness | Destigmatizing Mental Health For Teens By Design, Rhode L. Baptiste 2021 Virginia Commonwealth University

Kaleidoscope Wellness | Destigmatizing Mental Health For Teens By Design, Rhode L. Baptiste

Theses and Dissertations

Motivation

Mental health is a global public health crisis. (Marcus et. al, 2012; WHO, 2020). Although there is a growing acceptance of the complexities surrounding mental illness, care delivery for adolescents with mental health concerns remains highly stigmatized, which contributes to delays in care (Hoisington et. al, 2019; Burns & Birrell, 2014). Half of all mental illnesses can be detected prior to the age of 14 (National Alliance for Mental Health, 2020). While research exploring how the physical health care environment impacts health and well-being for patients has evolved immensely over the past two decades, research on how facility design contributes to healing for adolescents with mental health concerns is lacking. (Hoisington et al, 2019).

Problem

Historically, adolescents in need of mental health services were often sent away to a mental health facility that was isolated from the community. The design of these facilities reflected a priority to maximize safety and minimize the risk for self-harm, over the need to provide a human-centered and therapeutic environment that facilitates ongoing healing and readjustment into a daily routine upon discharge (Bil, 2016). Seclusion from the community has contributed to a lack of awareness and stigmatizing attitudes toward peers with mental health concerns, amongst adolescents (Raballo et al., 2017; Shepley, 2016; Bil, 2016). The design of mental health facilities for adolescents has not focused on providing a therapeutic milieu that facilitates information sharing and relationship-building between adolescents with mental health concerns, and the peers they prioritize as their support network (Hoisington et. al, 2019). The design precedents found indicate a ...


Flourish: Combating Food Insecurity & Promoting Wellness On A College Campus, Jocelyn Zavala 2021 Virginia Commonwealth University

Flourish: Combating Food Insecurity & Promoting Wellness On A College Campus, Jocelyn Zavala

Theses and Dissertations

MOTIVATION In the past, it has been assumed that students enrolled in college are fairly privileged individuals unlikely to face challenges associated with poverty (Haskett et al., 2020). That assumption has been challenged in the past few decades and a survey released last year by the Hope Center for College, Community and Justice indicated that 45% of today’s higher education students face food insecurity (Goldrick-Rab et al., 2019). According to VCU’s Dean of Students Office, it is a situation in which a student lacks access to enough nutritious food in order to live a healthy, active life. Food ...

Research In User-Centered Design 2009 To 2018: A Systematic Keyword Network Analysis, Yongyeon Cho, Hye Jeong Park, Huiwon Lim

Interior Design Conference Proceedings, Presentations and Posters

User-centered design (UCD) has become an important concept in Human-Computer Interaction (HCI) and other disciplines. While there is abundant UCD research, keyword analysis research has been less studied even though keywords are important for achieving better understanding of UCD. Therefore, this study provides keywords network a visual analysis of UCD articles published between 2009 and 2018 to answer the following questions: (1) What UCD-related keywords have been studied and in which disciplines? and (2) How have keywords been connected to on another? The study analyzed 304 keywords articles from IEEE, ACM, and ScienceDirect that included “UCD” in their titles. It ...


Shared Roots: An Examination Of The Interconnectedness Of Cultures And Nations Manifest Through Art And Design, Hannah Baldwin 2020 Utah State University

Shared Roots: An Examination Of The Interconnectedness Of Cultures And Nations Manifest Through Art And Design, Hannah Baldwin

Undergraduate Honors Capstone Projects

Design creates culture. Culture shapes values. Values determine the future.— Robert L. Peters

The way that people influence their surroundings through art and design is a fascinating lens through which to view culture and history. Visual arts, including architecture, illustrate how cultures meld and shape one another’s histories and values as they come in contact. Pattern making, in particular, is found in every culture as a way of recording and making sense of the patterns of life. This project seeks to highlight the interconnectedness of cultures by examining the history and cultures of three European countries through the lens ...


Wellness Design Assessment Criteria: Content Analysis Of Workplace Design Guidelines, Yongyeon Cho, Huiwon Lim, Hye Jeong Park 2020 Iowa State University

Wellness Design Assessment Criteria: Content Analysis Of Workplace Design Guidelines, Yongyeon Cho, Huiwon Lim, Hye Jeong Park

Interior Design Conference Proceedings, Presentations and Posters

ISSUE & PURPOSE OF RESEARCH Recent studies have addressed that design elements can enhance users’ health and well-being in their workplaces. In creating a mindful workplace, designers commonly refer to evidence-based guidelines, evaluation tools, and rating systems to supports each user’s physical, emotional, and social wellness. Although many rating systems are useful to experts, the systems are challenging to laypersons to use because of text-based content with jargon and complexity. Moreover, many such systems don’t tend to support non-expert users’ awareness of designing a workplace because all design elements are equally weighted even though some design elements are more essential than others. For this limitation, we focus on a design rating system for workplaces. This study is designed with three parts: The purpose of the first study is to develop inclusive wellness design criteria for office environments; the second study is to understand current office user’s perception of wellness regarding design features; the third study is to build a new framework to create a real-time based user-friendly mobile application for evaluating office users’ wellness about design experiences. This study is the first part of a total of three parts.

Students’ Integrated Sensory Analysis Results: A Case Study Of The Main Lobby Area In College Buildings, Yongyeon Cho

Interior Design Conference Proceedings, Presentations and Posters

ISSUE & PURPOSE A well-designed space influence on users’ overall positive sensory experience (Winer & Keim, 2018, August 7). Human sensory inputs have a stronger influence on both cognitive and emotional responses (Augustin et al., 2009) which closely related to design a learning environment. Although students’ sensory experiences are associated with their learning outcome, little research has been investigated student’s perception of sensory design elements in campus main lobby areas.


Undergraduate Educational Research Experiences In The Study Of Interior Design, Julia Virginia Pimentel Jiménez 2020 Western Michigan University

Undergraduate Educational Research Experiences In The Study Of Interior Design, Julia Virginia Pimentel Jiménez

Dissertations

Designers create social constructions (experiences and interactions) for human beings among themselves and with and within interior environments to enhance meaning in people´s lives (Poldma, 2011). Those social constructions are created through the design process developed by the interior designer; that process relies heavily on design research. Therefore, it is at the undergraduate level that the passion for research should start for interior design (ID) students. Faculty in ID programs need to encourage that passion by engage students in meaningful learning experiences such as how to ask questions about users, functions, activities, and aesthetics.

This study explored what types ...
