About

We seek to merge sociological research with a practical contribution to the design of information system. At the heart of this work is a methodological commitment to participation and use as well as to understanding the implications of IT systems on work, organization, communication, and social change.

We at Multidisciplinary Design & User Research seek to merge sociological research with a practical contribution to the design of information system. At the heart of this work is a methodological commitment to participation and use as well as to understanding the implications of IT systems on work, organization, communication, and social change.

Our research areas are (digital) design, media theory, CSCW (Computer-supported cooperative work), qualitative methods, design thinking as well as gender studies and ethics. Research and teaching are informed by an integrated, multi-disciplinary approach.

Research in the area of design focuses on interaction design (innovative, multimodal interfaces), design research, design methods, digital games, media art, and information visualisation. Research in the area of cooperative work integrates ethnographic studies with concept development and the design of applications by applying diverse design thinking methods. Our unit performs research in areas as diverse as health care, architecture and urban planning, e-learning, innovative organisations and communities, as well as everyday life. Gender forms a special point of attention in many of these projects and are also of practical concern, for example for conceptualising and evaluating mentoring programs. Another focus is on developing and teaching methods for research, design, and teaching, with the aim of merging ethnographic and other qualitative methods with participative and creative-experimental design methods.

The research Unit Multidisciplinary Design and User Research is part of the Institute of Visual Computing and Human-Centered Technology.
