    Practical Interaction Design (PID) is a
    method for teaching interaction design. It
    incorporates elements of ‘pure’ interaction
    design and human–computer interaction
    (HCI) to convey some of the playful flavour
    of the former with the tool-rich practicality
    of the latter. PID is distinguished from
    (traditional) HCI in many ways, but it is
    with respect to what it does not address
    that the differences are most pronounced.
    PID is not explicitly user centred: there is
    no place for cognitive psychology per se;
    nor the modelling of tasks; nor accounting
    for (that glaring category error) context.
    Instead there are roles for a Heideggerian
    treatment of familiarity, ideation and for
    personae and a series of ‘conversations’
    between designer and digital media and
    between designer and client.
