Tech-cessibility: Design & instruction of 3D-technologies for non-engineer minds

Log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

3D-technologies have the potential to help solve many of the world's most pervasive and complex problems in healthcare, but what good are they if very few individuals have the expertise to use them effectively? We can bridge the gap between the often-steep learning curve of 3D-technologies and the applications for which they would be most useful by leveraging concepts familiar to those who study Human Computer Interaction (HCI). Through careful examination of two different real-world implementations of 3D-technology training-- one for non-engineer clinicians within a rehabilitative clinic in Port-au-Prince, Haiti, and the other for students within an interdisciplinary undergraduate course setting in the United States, we distill and unpack the HCI concepts most vital to the design of 3D-tech translation software applications, products and pedagogy: usability, user experience, and ethnographic research.
