Nakaya-Sommet, Maki ; Sommet, Moritz

In: The Art of Kamishibai: The Word of the Image and the Image of the Word, International Symposium, Ljubljana, May 10-13, 2018. Online Compendium

This paper presents an on-going product design project that aims to improve reproductive health education in India through Japanese paper theatre (kamishibai). The educational kit resulting from the project alters the conventional form of kamishibai to adapt it to local conditions and make it easier to use, allowing untrained persons to teach this complex subject matter. We discuss the pilot...

“Are you really ready to change?” An actor-oriented perspective on a farmers training setting in Madagascar

Muller Mirza, Nathalie ; Perret-Clermont, Anne-Nelly

In: European Journal of Psychology of Education, 2016, vol. 31, no. 1, p. 79-93

Far from following a linear process from its conception to its implementation, an educational design often involves discrepancies between what its promoters intended and what the participants actually do. In this paper, drawing from a sociocultural perspective to learning, we focus our attention precisely on some of the discrepancies observed during the implementation of a training program. We...

Par une approche...

Environmental conservation in the domestic domain : the influence of technical design features and person-based factors

Sauer, Jürgen ; Rüttinger, Bruno

In: Ergonomics, 2004, vol. 47, no. 10, p. 1053-1072

This article presents three experiments that examined proenvironmental behaviour during utilisation of electrical consumer products in the domestic domain. One experiment was carried out in the laboratory (N=48), two others in the field (N=18, N=24). First, the work aimed to evaluate various ergonomic measures with regard to their effectiveness to influence proenvironmental behaviour. Second, it...

Adaptive Hypermedia Systems design : a method from practice

Armani, Jacopo ; Botturi, Luca

In: WWW/Internet 2003, Algarve, Portugal, 2003, p. 843

Adaptive Hypermedia Systems represent a great potential for e-learning; nevertheless instructors and designers find it difficult to develop adaptive application within their framework. This paper presents a map-based visual design method, developed at the AHS atelier in the University of Lugano and tailored for non-technical people, for designing adaptive courseware according to different...
