Experience design across scales: zooming between interaction design and system design
Experience design at it’s core is about designing for change of user behaviour. At it’s most detailed, interaction design looks at the micro interactions - that make up specific action people are completing at a moment in time. As we zoom out, the focus of design shifts in focus from microinteractions to screens; tasks; activities; services; and services and finally to higher level interconnected systems. As we increase our zoom, the toolset and perspective of the designer also needs to shift.
This talk will look at examples of this change in perspective as we design at different scales of experience design, and some of the accompanying change in perspective, skills and methods needed to successfully move between them.

The Internet of Everything (IoE) goes beyond the Internet of Things (IoT), beyond the pure technology focus. This talk will explain what the Internet of Everything is, looks at the growing global IoE community network and how the UX/CX community can contribute to drive adoption of this topic and make the world a better place.
