The importance of the field we know as human-computer interaction grows as information technology increasingly becomes a pervasive part of everyday life. This chapter argues that a design perspective is better suited to meet the challenge than the traditional foundations of experimental psychology and information systems development. For professional software development, main implications include addressing the whole design task rather than merely the user interface, breaking monolithic processes into smaller steps, and recognizing that problem setting can never be separated from problem solving. The main implication for higher education is the notion of a design learning studio where constructive and reflective work are intertwined.
