Over the last decade, empirical relationships between work domain analysis and HCI design have been identified by much research in the field of Human Work Interaction Design (HWID) across five continents. Since this workshop takes place at the Interact Conference in Mumbai, there is a unique opportunity to observe technology-mediated innovative work practices in informal settings that may be related to the notion of International Development. In this unique context, this workshop proposes to analyze findings related to opportunities for design research in this type of work domains: a) human-centered design approaches for specific work domains (workplaces, smart workplaces); b) visions of new roles for workplaces that enhance both work practice and interaction design. In order to do this, participants engage with field trips, gather data and discuss their experience at the workshop on the following day.
