Dear diary : a design exploration on motivating reflective diary writing

Research output: Contribution to conferencePosterAcademic

Abstract

This research-through-design study explores the motivations and threshold for
reflective diary writing, as a case of supporting behavior change through product design. A
field study examines how a new design of a diary triggers and stimulates writing and taking
a reflective perspective. The most important finding shows that the design changes the
overall experience and strengthens the reflective value of diary writing. The findings suggest
focusing on motivation and experience design for supporting behavior change.
