Interaction Design Professor Tad Hirsch had an article titled “Surreptitious Communication Design” published in the Spring 2016 Design Issues from MIT Press. Also from MIT Press is a new book, Civic Media: Technology, Design, Practice, which contains Hirsch’s chapter titled “Case Study: Pivot—Surreptitious Communications Design for Victims of Human Trafficking.”

He traveled to San Jose, California, in early May for CHI 2016, a major human-computer interaction conference. While there, Hirsch co-presented a poster titled "Developing an Automated Report Card for Addiction Counseling: The Counselor Observer Ratings Expert for MI (CORE-MI)" in a Computing and Mental Health Workshop. Graduating MDes student Geoff Gray was one of the poster presentation co-authors. Hirsch and graduating MDes student Catherine Lim attended the Designing Interactive Systems (DIS 2016) conference in Brisbane, Australia, during early June. They co-presented two papers while there: “What’s for Lunch? A Socio-ecological Approach to Childcare Nutrition” and “’It just seems outside my health’: How Patients with Chronic Conditions Perceive Communication Boundaries with Providers.”
