In August, Dr. Noel presented her work titled, “A Multiple-Making Approach: Capturing Practices + Skill + Cognition“ at the American Psychological Association 2021 Virtual Convention. In her presentation she asks, What are some ways of capturing and describing skilled craft practice so that it can be investigated and passed on to others? How does embodied cognition figure in craft practice? Her presentation shares how embodied knowledge and cognition in craft might be accessed and documented for its restoration, remediation, and reconfiguration. By bringing together methods in computational design, science and technology studies (STS), ethnography, and human-computer interaction (HCI), she develops a Multiple-Making approach to inquiry in craft that facilitates investigating knowledges and cognition.
