People and Technology

The People and Technology (PAT) group is a collection of human-computer interaction (HCI) researchers interested in understanding, designing, and evaluating digital technologies. The group is committed to experience-centred, participatory approaches to the design of technology. The excitement of experience-centred, participatory design for us is in helping ensure that technological developments give people a chance for a richer life, to include people who too often are excluded, and to ensure that everyone feels free to think about and discuss what matters to them especially those people who feel they have no voice.
