Participatory design for users with impairments @PDC 2012

Posted by Selina Schepers on Monday May 7th 2012 at 14:20

 

At the Participatory Design Conference (PDC) Social Spaces is organising a workshop on participatory design for users with impairments (well, full title is Participatory Design for Users with Impairments Affecting Cognitive Functions and Communication Skills.

This workshop aims to exchange experiences with participatory design techniques that were designed for, or adapted to people with impairments. Since many of these techniques are highly focused  on specific target groups, a further aim is to extract general principles and to generate guidelines for involving users with impairments in the design process. 

We want to bring together researchers, designers, thinkers & tinkerers who have worked with this specific target group and wish to share experiences. You can find more info and register at the workshops blog.

We organize this workshop together with IDStudioLab (TU Delft), SMIT (VUB) and CUO (KULeuven)
