Time:5:45-7:30 p.m.
Description:"Product Design: The New Interplay of People, Objects and Information" is a panel presented by iSchool leaders Dean Andrew Dillon, Diane E. Bailey and Randolph Bias that discusses the challenges of successful design in an information-rich world.

The panelists break the process into three parts: (1) understanding how users process information in information-rich environments; (2) understanding how we think of objects as they become increasingly digital and virtual via new technologies and (3) understanding how users interact with physical and virtual objects. The panelists will consider the broader implications for design as well as what happens when design falters in any one of these three areas.

Designing a product well requires knowledge of the user and knowledge of the product-as-object. Advances in communication technology, including computational software, simulation tools and social media, place an increasing wealth of information in the hands of designers about users and objects. The challenge of modern product design is to harness that wealth of information.
