Abstract [en]

This paper provides an interpretation of interaction design patterns from the perspective of design-oriented research in information systems. It is concluded that interaction design patterns do not meet certain ideals for contemporary information systems design theory: Rigor, practical utility, novelty/innovation, acknowledgement of the social setting, and cumulative research. The lack of explicit ideals governing the formulation of interaction design patterns is discussed, and implications for research are drawn.
