Inspiratiebeurs: Innovatief woonzorgzorgconcept Sint-Jozef Neerpelt – Bouwen met en in de buurt (in Dutch)

Posted by Selina Schepers on Wednesday January 29th 2014 at 11:47

In Sint-Huibrechts-Lille is er een mogelijkheid om een woonzorgcampus te bouwen. U kan mee bepalen hoe die campus er zal uit zien!

Kom naar de inspiratiebeurs! Met een drankje en een hapje kan u de inspiratiebeurs bezoeken waar mooie voorbeelden van zorg worden getoond die inspirerend kunnen zijn voor Sint-Huibrechts-Lille.

We willen samen met u nadenken over:
 Hoe wil ik oud worden in mijn vertrouwde buurt?
 Hoe moet mijn huis er uit zien als ik hulp nodig heb?
 Welke hulp heb ik nodig als ik ziek of ouder word?
 Ik wil niet eenzaam zijn, wat doe ik er aan?
 Kan ik op de buurt rekenen voor boodschappen?

Call for Papers: The 13th biennial Participatory Design Conference (PDC) in Windhoek, Namibia. (6. – 10. October 2014)

Posted by Katrien Dreessen on Thursday January 16th 2014 at 14:07

The conference theme of the 13th Participatory Design Conference  2014 is “Reflecting connectedness”. We are currently experiencing a  technologically pushed trend in ‘being always connected’.  This is  manifested in a number of designed artifacts, such as smart-phones,  social networks, computer supported cooperative work and distributed  working tools. By ‘reflecting connectedness’ in PD, we acknowledge  influential relations across continents, societies, people,  disciplines and time, beyond the direct involvement of stakeholders.   While PD has evolved as a discipline on its own, we should  continuously reflect on interrelations of theories and practices  within and across the field and thereby enriching PD within a wider context. We must further engage in critical debates of what it means  to design within and for a multilayered network, such as the on-line  world versus off-line interactions, the blurring distinction of  designers and users, researchers and artists, design and research ‘in  the wild’, designing for social justice, inclusiveness, and  sustainability. We invite authors to deliberate on these relations within and beyond the field of PD, which affect its conceptualization  and practices all over.
The 2014 PDC seeks to attract submissions from different disciplines,  academics, practitioners and artists in form of tutorials, workshops,  doctorial consortiums, participatory art encounters, papers, and  industry cases.

NXT_SLEEP workshop: Usage scenarios that embody our vision on future sleep research

Posted by Bert Vandenberghe on Wednesday January 15th 2014 at 20:09

Today, we brought together all partners of the NXT_SLEEP project to work out some realistic NXT_SLEEP usage scenarios.

Usage scenario workshop NXT_SLEEP

The user and task analysis was presented to all partners, because it provides a context for future design and development in the NXT_SLEEP project. Still, there was a distinct need for a clear vision on the future usage scenarios for the product(s). During the workshop, we elaborated some short-term, mid-term, and long-term NXT_SLEEP scenarios.

The user requirements and the outcome of this workshop enable us to start working on the user interface for the NXT_SLEEP software that embodies our vision on future sleep research.
