Beyond Human Centred Design

Actions have consequences. Over the past century, humanity has been painfully coming to grips with this reality as crises mount due to unforeseen impacts of past decisions.

Güzin and Eddie will guide our teams of four as they design a solution in teams that provides positive social benefits while using lean design. Teams will prototype using legos, paper, or digital tools, and also quickly test their solutions.

They will teach participants about lean design while pushing them to consider the impact & outcomes beyond the now so they can take this into their own practice.

The Blind Spot: Ethical aspects when designing human-machine interfaces

Ethical aspects of digital technologies are increasingly focussed when developing digital products and services. But which facets are of importance for whom, and how can we consider them in the design of digital artifacts?

The short workshop will focus on ethical issues that may come up when designing digital human-machine interfaces (HMI) with a human centered perspective.

How many workshops may I attend?

In July, we’ll send an email to all attendees to allow them to pre-sign up to the workshops.
Attendees can register in advanced in up to 3 workshops, as long as those still have available slots. If you register to more than 3, the extra tickets will be cancelled, favouring those workshops with the most demand.

If there are spaces left in the workshops during the day of the event, you’ll be able to take those spaces signing up on arrival. We do this so at least all attendees get to attend limited workshops.
