Sas, Corina and Dix, Alan (2008) Enhancing Creativity in Interaction Design: Alternative Design Brief. In: Creativity and HCI: From experience to design in education. Springer Verlag, pp. 175-188.
This paper offers a critique of the design brief as it is currently used in teaching interaction design and proposes an alternative way of developing it. Such a design brief requires the exploration of alternative application domains for an already developed technology. The paper presents a case study where such a novel type of design brief has been offered to the students taking part in a collaborative design project and discusses how it supported divergent thinking and creativity as well as helped enhancing the learning objectives.
