Assistant Professor of Visual Communication Design Omar Sosa-Tzec is one of the recipients of this award for 2022. This award releases faculty from instructional and service responsibilities for one semester in order to support their research. Sosa-Tzec's project is concerned with designing for digital wellbeing—the notion of having a balanced relationship with everyday technology.</p> <p>Research shows that uncontrolled use of technology and screen time can undermine people's wellbeing by causing anxiety, depression, sleep deprivation, and productivity loss, among other unfavorable effects. This situation has motivated designers in academia and industry to explore tools and solutions that promote digital wellbeing. For this project, Dr. Sosa-Tzec will engage in social semiotic multimodal analysis and design activities, including sketching and prototyping, to investigate speculative, metaphorical, delightful ways to display screen time and digital wellbeing-related information on mobile screens. By doing so, Sosa-Tzec seeks to illustrate the generative application of (metaphorical) design tension—a concept explored in his analytical research—in UI/UX design. Additionally, he urges UI/UX designers to explore deviation from conventional design patterns as a tactic to develop "design imagination" and new possibilities for mobile screen design.</p> </div> </div> </div> </div> <p>Tags</p> <div class="tags-item"> <ul class="list-inline"> <li > <a href="/tags/tags/tenuredtenure-track-faculty" hreflang="en">Tenured/Tenure-Track Faculty</a></li> <li > <a href="/tags/tags/research" hreflang="en">Research</a></li> <li > <a href="/tags/tags/award" hreflang="en">award</a></li> </ul> </div> </div> </div> Mon, 22 Aug 2022 20:38:24 +0000 Omar Sosa Tzec 187 at https://design.sfsu.edu Prof. Chu wins Distinguished Faculty Award, Excellence in Teaching https://design.sfsu.edu/prof-chu-wins-distinguished-faculty-award-excellence-teaching <div class="row bs-1col node node--type-news node--view-mode-rss"> <div class="col-sm-12 bs-region bs-region--main"> <div class="field field--name-node-title field--type-ds field--label-hidden field--item"><h1 class="news-title"> Prof. Chu wins Distinguished Faculty Award, Excellence in Teaching </h1> </div> <div class="field field--name-field-sub-component field--type-entity-reference-revisions field--label-hidden field--item"> <div class="pl-component pl-component--news-headline-topfold news-wrapper"> <div class="news-author">Author: School of Design </div> <div class="news-info"> <div class="news-date"> May 16, 2022 </div> <div class="field field--name-field-p-image field--type-entity-reference field--label-hidden field--item"> <img loading="lazy" src="/sites/default/files/styles/sf_state_1440x564/public/images/Chu_Banner_Web2.png?h=93c8ae4a&amp;itok=jDoFxG_H" width="1440" height="564" alt="Headshot of Professor Chu" class="img-responsive" /> </div> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field--name-field-component field--type-entity-reference-revisions field--label-hidden field--items"> <div class="field--item"><div class="pl-component pl-component--content-basic" > <div class="field field--name-field-p-formatted-content field--type-text-long field--label-hidden field--item"><p>Prof. Hsiao-Yun Chu has won San Francisco State University's Distinguished Faculty Award for Excellence in Teaching.
