About the course

This course is offered as part of a programme:

Interaction Design, Master's Programme (One-Year)

Course content

The course provides an overview of participatory design and co-design methods that can be used as tools for bringing people together and creating democratic processes that facilitate change. Through hands-on experimentation, students will develop sensitivity towards when and how technological infrastructures can facilitate connectivity, balanced with face-to-face events that encourage, establish and solidify human connections. At the level of methodology, the course focuses on intervention- and community-oriented co-design methods. Various specific techniques will be introduced to implement the co-design methods. These may include: envisioning, mashups, social interventions, community-based participation and co-determination, and perpetual-beta development approaches for the development of digital platforms for collaboration.
