Interaction design has many dimensions to it. It addresses how people deal with words, read images, explore physical space, think about time and motion, and how actions and responses affect human behavior. Various disciplines make up interaction design, such as industrial design, cognitive psychology, user interface design and many others. This presentation will give the audience a starting point for creating a visual language to enhance the understanding of interdisciplinary theories within the UX and interaction design field. It will use concise descriptions, visual metaphors and comparative diagrams to explain each term’s meaning, such as Affordances, Cognitive Load Theory, Signal and Cue and others. This is a great session for people new to designing for the web, project managers, developers and other stakeholders who want to brush up on the proper language of the web design process. The session is based on my book: Interdisciplinary Interaction Design – A Visual Guide.
