It's not interaction, it's make believe.

Conference Proceeding
Turner, P., Turner, S., & Carruthers, L. (2014)
It's not interaction, it's make believe. In Proceedings of the 2014 European Conference on Cognitive Ergonomics. https://doi.org/10.1145/2637248.2637266
A principal, but largely unexplored, use of our cognition when using interacting technology involves pretending. To pretend is to believe that which is not the case, for examp...

An Affordance-based Framework for CVE Evaluation

Conference Proceeding
Turner, P., & Turner, S. (2002)
An Affordance-based Framework for CVE Evaluation. In X. Faulkner, J. Finlay, & F. Détienne (Eds.), People and Computers XVI - Memorable Yet Invisible, 89-103. https://doi.org/10.1007/978-1-4471-0105-5_6
We argue that a conceptual framework is required to support the practical evaluation of collaborative virtual environments. We propose such a framework based on an extended, t...

Creating a sense of place with a deliberately constrained virtual environment

Journal Article
Turner, P., Turner, S., & Burrows, L. (2013)
Creating a sense of place with a deliberately constrained virtual environment. International Journal of Cognitive Performance Support, 1, 54-68. https://doi.org/10.1504/IJCPS.2013.053554
This study took as its starting point the premise that a high degree of realism is not a necessary condition for the creation of a ‘sense of place’ in mediated experiences suc...

Soundscapes and repertory grids: comparing listeners’ and a designer’s experiences.

Conference Proceeding
McGregor, I., & Turner, P. (2012)
Soundscapes and repertory grids: comparing listeners’ and a designer’s experiences. In P. Turner, S. Turner, & I. McGregor (Eds.), ECCE 2012 (131-137). https://doi.org/10.1145/2448136.2448164
This paper reports on establishing whether listeners have the same listening experience as the person who designed the sound. Surprisingly, there is little or no evidence as t...

Beyond relative advantage: factors in end-user uptake of computer supported cooperative working.

Book
Turner, S., & Turner, P. (2002)
Beyond relative advantage: factors in end-user uptake of computer supported cooperative working. In Advanced Topics in End User Computing II, 18-43. Idea Press
Researchers in Information Systems have produced a rich collection of metaanalyses and models of factors influencing the uptake of information technologies. In the domain of C...

Evaluating soundscapes as a means of creating a sense of place

Conference Proceeding
Turner, P., McGregor, I., Turner, S., & Carroll, F. (2003)
Evaluating soundscapes as a means of creating a sense of place
We report an empirical study into the creation of, and response to, a soundscape of a computer centre. We contrast the use of presence questionnaires, as means of assessing th...

Expectations and experiences of CSCW in an engineering environment.

Journal Article
Turner, S., & Turner, P. (1996)
Expectations and experiences of CSCW in an engineering environment. Computer Supported Cooperative Work, 1, 237-254
Existing organisational context and user expectations have a huge effect on the success of introducing CSCW technology, and should have a correspondingly strong influence on t...
