Share Best Practices - Patterns

“Shape Patterns, Not Programs”

Excellent lessons and a wealth of references are included in this paper, Changing Homeland Security: Shape Patterns, Not Programs which is applicable to a wide and sundry audience. Their future emerges; it is not designed. There is much good advice here for all organizations dealing with complex issues.

Design thinking & complexity pt 3

Dave Snowden

I argued by implication that traditional design thinking prematurely converges on a requirement with is then throw over the wall the creatives to ideate a solution. Only once a pattern emerges should you move it into a more formal process: the complex to complicated shift.

Collective intelligence patterns

Clark Quinn

In his presentation on The Landscape of Collective Intelligence, he comes up with four characteristics of design patterns (or genes, as he calls them): What (strategy), Who (staffing), How (structure & process), & Why (incentives/alignment). This is a really nice systematic breakdown into patterns tied to real examples. For What, it’s Create a solution or Decide on an issue.

Six habits for visual designers new to UX design.

Adaptive Path

I haven’t noticed much basic guidance for visual designers new to the UX world. Often these are positions designing for singular needs. Develop an eye for patterns. The more you look at wireframes and schematics, the more you can pinpoint patterns to describe. As your files grow, fast design iteration can spin them out of control, especially on large projects. This will help map your work to the overall project and keep a lid on version control issues.

All Social is Learning | Organizational Knowledge Design

Martijn Linssen

If events occur as predicted, we reinforce that cognitive pattern for the next use (naturally, we have the ability to learn the wrong things here). If they do not, we reconsider our pattern assessment logic. All Social is Learning | Organizational Knowledge Design [.]

[liveblog] Judith Donath on designing for sociality (“Social Machines”)

David Weinberger

I read it this weekend and it is a rich work that explores the ways in which good design can improve our online sociality. Judith begins by saying that the theme of the book is the importance of online social interaction and designing for it. She uses a Mark Twain story [" Was the World Made for Man? "] about an oyster’s point of view to remind us that online design isn’t really all that evolved. One big issue: We can’t see the interactions.

The Future IMS Learning Design

Stephen Downes: Half an Hour

The Future IMS Learning Design What is the future of learning design? Joel Greenberg My own personal view: maybe the world is moving on, and maybe the idea of 'design' is a bit old fashioned. Conclusions: issues about efficiency, limitations of the generic approach (it gets very complex), complexity of generic serving descriptions (Symbian. Instead of trying to systematize, to sequence, a more appropriate approach is based around patterns and connections.

Shaming, safety, & misconceptions

Clark Quinn

Instead it was about whether the designers would feel proscribed from making real errors because of their expectation of learner’s emotions. And, I have strong beliefs about why this is an important issue. Our errors don’t tend to be random (there is some randomness), but instead are patterned. Instead, as I’ve said , learning should be designed action and guided reflection. designAnother twitter debate , another blog post.
