On the micro level, being interdisciplinary means not restricting your own self to one particular domain, but having an open attitude.

Mattelmäki (2006) has identified five steps in the probing process: 1. , designers and researchers collaboratively explore the experiential elements of the topic, and plan and design the probes kits and the assignments. 2. , self-documentation and reflection of the experiences at the users’ context. 3. , the returned probes are studied for further questions. 4. , follow-up of the probe materials in an interview with the users. 5. , the researchers and designers collaboratively make sense and create interpretations of the probes.

What Is Probing? Although the probing approach escapes from one definition or an agreed procedure, we may still talk about the how of probing based on an essential structure and practices commonly found in precedents, in order to provide an entry point for beginners. Probing is typically applied in the early phases of the design process where the questions and the design directions are explored. Mattelmäki (2006) has identified five steps in the probing process: 1. , designers and researchers collaboratively explore the experiential elements of the topic, and plan and design the probes kits and the assignments.
