Title:The d-school in the i-school: HCI and Design Research
Author(s):Carroll, John M.; Haynes, S.R.; Ritter, F.E.; Rosson, M.B.; Zhang, X.L.
Human-Computer Interaction
Abstract:In the context of a campus-wide strategic planning process, we have been asked to frame the special role of Penn State's Center for Human-Computer Interaction (CHCI) within the College of Information Sciences and Technology (IST). Our response is that HCI should fulfill an important role as a focus for design research within our i-school. As support for this response we explore the following propositions: 1. Design research and design science are essential to i-schools. 2. HCI is historically, currently, and inherently a design science of the just right sort to contribute to i-schools. 3. Other constituencies/subunits of i-schools (CS, IS, LIS, STS) are not design sciences, but benefit from organizational proximity of HCI design research. In this brief paper, we sketch the argument entailed by these propopsitions. Our objective is to better understand and articulate the role of HCI and design research in i-schools.
