Making Representations Matter: Understanding Practitioner Experience in Participatory Sensemaking

This thesis intends to develop and apply a method to analyze, characterize, and compare instances of professional practice in such a way as to highlight experiential aspects such as aesthetics, narrative, improvisation, sensemaking, and ethics.

Appropriating new technologies in order to foster collaboration and participatory engagement is a focus for many fields, but there is relatively little research on the experience of practitioners who do so. The role of technology-use mediators is to help make such technologies amenable and of value to the people who interact with them and each other.
