Visiting lecture by Peter Lloyd: Using talk to analyse design processes: practice, theory, method'
Welcome to visiting lecture with Professor Peter Lloyd, who talks about 'Using talk to analyse design processes: practice, theory, method'.
How important is talk in the design process? We tend to think of designing as a visual and tactile process, with sketches and prototypes evidence of progress.

How important is talk in the design process? We tend to think of designing as a visual and tactile process, with sketches and prototypes evidence of progress. Yet conversation surrounds all design activity, providing the social context that to a great extent determines what gets done. This workshop and seminar will help participants to explore how concepts of language can be related to the activities of designing. Participants will gain an insight into how ’stories’ form a vital part of the design process, discover how patterns and types of talk determine what gets designed, and learn how to analyse an example transcript of video recorded design process.
