Ben Shneiderman, Professor of Computer Science at the University of Maryland at College Park, recently published The New ABCs of Research: Achieving Breakthrough Collaborations. It’s meant to be a guide for students and researchers about the various efforts to better integrate different kinds of research and design to improve research outputs and outcomes. He describes it, and his perspective on a more integrative research perspective, in a short video. The book works its way through the context and implementation of his research perspective.
(Disclaimer – I exchanged emails with Shneiderman about research models that informed his work. I have not yet read the book, which was published in March, but have been told I am acknowledged in it.)
Shneiderman has been giving seminars related to the book, and the next one is in New York City on Thursday April 21. For those in the greater Washington, D.C. area, one is scheduled for next Wednesday, April 27, at the University of Maryland. The book is already available online through Oxford University Press and other booksellers.
