“Can Interaction Design Civilize the Experience Economy?” Article in Interactions.

Posted on May 4, 2013 by Mahnaz Yousefzadeh

As a teacher, I endeavor to inspire students to become intellectually curious agents of culture and society. The pedagogical task for me is to model the intellectual thrill of textual discovery in class, then take students outside the classroom for real-life contact with the origins and legacies of the texts. I have deep respect for students and their potential as critical and creative thinkers and writers. I see it as my task to help them develop their potential through feedback, feedback that highlights their current strengths and pushes the arguments and analysis to a certain limit. My goal is not only to bring the texts to life, but to take students “behind the scenes” of culture creation in order to experience themselves as participants rather than as mere consumers of knowledge.
