Project Concept Presentations, July 14th

Participants present their interim project concepts and design directions in an interactive online session via Zoom and Miro on Tuesday, July 14th 10:00 – 13:00.

Students prepared collaborative or solo write-ups or blog posts building on their research and design concepts from their previous assignments to address the crisis contexts they have been investigating. They worked towards proposing project concepts and design directions, including how they would conduct research with stakeholders and participants, design potential concepts, services or technologies, and approach the implementation and assessment of emerging outcomes.

For students taking the course for 3 credits, this is their final deliverable. For others taking the course for 6 credits, this will serve as the basis for the development of extended projects in the 2nd half (July 30 – Sept 1).

Below are the key themes participants chose to tackle, along with their Miro concept boards:

  1. Beyond Resilience: Crisis as an Opportunity for Sustainable, Social Transformation, Miro board by Paulina Matilla, Floris Van der Marel and Tiina Tuulos
  2. Reforming HCD in Relation to Challenges of Contact Tracing Technologies, Miro board by Kiko Chen and Nagadivya Balasubramaniam
