The RSA Student Design Awards and The Glass-House would like to invite you to an interactive workshop that will introduce you to elements of action research and participatory design, applicable to all SDA briefs.
This interactive online workshop will explore the value and methods of participatory design, essential to shaping informed and inclusive design proposals built on solid research. Through real-life examples, discussion and co-design tasks, we will explore the role that effective engagement can play in: better understanding the context and brief; exploring need and opportunity; unleashing assets and creativity; and building interest, collaboration and investment.
During this workshop you will have the opportunity to explore:
- The value of engaging users in design
- The basics of mapping and its role in a design journey
- Using what you learn through engagement to inform a design process
- Bringing together user engagement, desk-based research, product/place design and business planning to achieve viability We’re looking for a group of enthusiastic and curious students from a variety of disciplines.
This workshop is for you if you are passionate about creating solutions with the user in mind and keen to tap into existing knowledge in your community.
Please note: You’ll need to be a student, on any course, at a higher education institution, or a recent graduate within one year of graduating. You can still apply even if you are not working on the competition at this stage.
This is a free event, you can apply for a spot here.
