BSc Interactive Media graduate has final project published
IM graduate has final project published in the BCS - Human Computer Interaction Conference 2023
Ashleigh Kruger, a recent graduate of the BSc Interactive Media programme in the School of Arts and Creative Technologies has had her final project published in the BCS - Human Computer Interaction Conference 2023. Ashleigh’s paper won third place (honorable mention) for best paper. As a result of this award, she has been invited to submit a Special issue in the Interacting with Computers journal. The paper is titled "Increasing independence for older adults who need technology support".
Ashleigh said, "The success of this research has been heavily influenced by its strengths in following an empathic co-design approach, including both grandchildren and older adults in the development of the design and running focus groups and usability testing with the older adults. I am hoping that this encourages others to consider adopting and researching more inclusive design processes.”
Ashleigh will be continuing to work on this subject at the School through an MSc by research. She will be supervised by Sanjit Samaddar and Abi Evans.
