Abstract [en]

Research Through Design (RtD) has recently grown as a perspective in the fields of HCI – Human Computer Interaction and interaction design research. With a focus on making and doing as a way of exploring RtD has successfully established a link between making and reflecting. However, from the viewpoint of learning there is still a lack of literature describing how the RtD approach can be useful in pedagogical settings, e.g. as an approach to learning and as a method for interaction design students. To address this need this paper describes a Learning through Making (LtM) approach to interaction design. We suggest that a Learning through Making (LtM) approach can be grounded on earlier work on Research through Design (RtD) and we present the setup of a new student lab in our department explicitly aimed at supporting this proposed approach before concluding this paper.
