People are fluent in non-verbally negotiating group interaction to decide who will speak and about what by adjusting their posture and position. How people do this has been well documented in the social science research area, interaction analysis. As designers and engineers, we create tools that unintentionally, or occasionally intentionally, affect how groups can interact by changing what non-verbal behaviours are available to the people in them. This talk covers some of the theory of non-verbal group interaction from interaction analysis and looks at how it might be applied to the design of technology and facilitation techniques.
