Join us for the first UXPA event of 2020!

Many design frameworks and principles tend to focus on anticipated and common events. In addition to common events, operators and users of complex systems are also confronted with unanticipated events that are often precursors to major accidents.

Ecological interface design (EID) is a theoretical framework developed for designing user interfaces to support operators in problem solving during unanticipated events. EID has been accruing substantial design and empirical research evidence to support its effectiveness in support operators during unanticipated events.

This workshop begins with an overview of EID and a review of several ecological interfaces as case studies. The workshop continues with outlining the process of carry out analysis and design prescribed by the framework, and working through a few examples as a group. The workshop concludes with open discussion about the EID and other design methods.
