Effective design of shared mediated spaces, information and connectedness requires theory and practice from a range of disciplines such as found in European projects like Together Anywhere, Together Anytime (TA2) and the EIT ICT Labs Mediating Presence activity. Building on this work we continue to investigate the changes in the European digital...

Low-cost video conferencing systems have provided an existence proof for the value of video communication in a home setting. At the same time, current systems have a number of fundamental limitations that inhibit more general social interactions among multiple groups of participants. In our work, we describe the development, implementation and...

Human-centred design (HCD) is a form of open innovation in which researchers and designers cooperate with (potential) users or customers, e.g. in co-design workshops, interviews, user tests and trials. Based on a case study of two open innovation projects in which HCD activities were organized (TA2 and WeCare), and a survey amongst team members...

Evaluating the credibility of information is a difficult yet essential task in a society where the Internet plays a large role. Familiarity with the topic at hand has been shown to have a large influence on the way credibility is evaluated; 'familiar users' tend to focus on semantic features, 'unfamiliar users' focus more on surface features. In...

In this paper, we discuss several ways in which the capability approach offers a valuable and useful perspective to better understand and organize processes of designing ICT. First, we present the WeCare project, in which the authors work and which will serve as an example of applying the capability approach. Next, we introduce our understanding...

Research on transactive memory has showed the positive effects of training together. This study investigated how feedback and reflection affect transactive memory in settings where there is no time for elaborate team training. Newly formed teams were given accurate, false or no feedback about their individual performance on a prior...

In this paper, we present some of the work that is being done in the WeCare project (in the AAL programme). The project’s goal is to introduce social networking services in the lives of older people, in order to improve their well-being. Participation in social networks, both online and ‘in real life’ will help them to stay in touch with family...

The use of Wikipedia as an information source is becoming increasingly popular. Several studies have shown that its information quality is high. Normally, when considering information trust, the source of information is an important factor. However, because of the open-source nature of Wikipedia articles, their sources remain mostly unknown....

In this essay, I bring together Participatory Design's (PD) tradition of critical reflection on one's own practices, and Science and Technology Studies' focus on specific activities ('opening the black box'), in order to explore the ethics of PD. Three different forms of ethics—ethics-of-theother, pragmatist ethics and virtue ethics—are...

The decision making process during crisis events at the strategic level is often not effective or efficient, thereby hampering operational efforts. We have developed several tools to support strategic multi-party teams. After a 3 hour training session with mayors during a simulated crisis, these tools can be mastered.

Teams of teams, or multiteam systems, are increasingly used to complete challenging tasks in dynamic environments. Individual teams are integrated in multiteam systems as ‘component teams’ that heavily rely on each other’s inputs, processes, and outcomes to perform effectively and to achieve shared, multiteam system goals. Members need to engage...

We have investigated an alternative assignment of manning on board Dutch coasters to show that the current level of safety is maintained when mono disciplinary Chief Engineers are replaced by Marof: Maritime Officers, who have received education in navigational as well as engineering skills (at watch keeping level). We compared the alternative...

All navies, when taking initiative to build a new platform, have difficulties with determining in an early phase the number of people that are needed to sail the planned ship. How do you approach this problem? How can you reduce the complexity of it? How do you reach a cost-effective solution? How do you coordinate all the stakeholders and...

Resilience is of great importance to teams operating in complex environments, such as command and control teams. Team resilience is the ability of teams to respond to sudden, unanticipated demands for performance quickly and with minimum decrement of performance. The objective of this study was to design and test a training intervention to make...

In complex endeavors, characterized by multiple interdependent participants with different functions and objectives, it is difficult for an entity to determine how to cooperate with other entities. Simply striving to cooperate at the highest level possible comes at high costs. But how should an entity determine what cooperation approach is...
