Tummeling: Creating Social Engagement for Interaction Designers
Instructor: Heather Gold
Innovative comedian Heather Gold explains basic differences between presentation and conversation and the assumptions underneath each. More entertainingly (and usefully) she demonstrates these ideas by creating a great, relevant conversation in the room so that all can feel the difference.
Heather will explain how to tummel and how to specifically design for it.
This tutorial will emphasize how to use these techniques to design for social engagement. The real-time web has a lot of interaction between people, not just between people and graphics or interfaces. Learn how to start with the social drivers to create the best space and conditions for engagement.
You'll learn the conversational "mechanics" that let you create quick intimacy and avoid boredom. Go from talking AT or TO a large group of people to talking WITH them. You already know how to have a great conversation with one person. Learn how to read the room and transform your presentations into conversations. Heather will use a fishbowl technique to have some intense participation for some and looser participation for everyone.
