I am excited to be collaborating with Design Assembly to deliver a public workshop on Co-design techniques here in Auckland. The 4 hour workshop taking place on the 21st June will be a hands-on exploration of co-design workshop methods and techniques and the principles behind them. The workshop will be run at the Bizdojo‘s new Makerspace!
Check out the Design Assembly site for full details.
Co-design Workshop: Methods and Techniques for Designing with Users.
Participants will try out and deconstruct different techniques, walk through the process of designing a co-design workshop and the outputs it delivers, and review how such participatory design research can be used to drive design.
The workshop will cover:
- Frequently used co-design methods and the principles behind them
- The benefits and risks of taking a co-design approach
- How co-design methods might fit into your future projects
- Resources and tips for planning, designing and running co-design workshops
- Props and tools you need in your co-design workshop toolkit
Who should attend:
The workshop is aimed at anyone with an interest in using creative and participatory methods to better understand the lives and contexts of their users or to engage them in the design process. It will also be valuable to those looking to foster a more collaborative design process internally or with clients and stakeholders. A taster of some of what will be covered can be seen in this Johnny Holland article.
