Promoting Service Design as a Critical Lens within HCI

2150 Torgersen

HCI has a history of adding critical lenses in reaction to the kinds of things it makes. It started with a narrow focus on usability and then added a user-centered design (UCD) lens in order create tools that made people more effective at work. More recently it added a user experience (UX) lens in order to design products consumers desire. Today HCI promotes UCD and UX as core to what we do and who we are.
