A Participatory Design session brings end users together to help them
articulate their needs and generate solutions. When conducted during the
design process, this method allows us to create delightful experiences
that truly address user’s needs, mental models and context – and that
they actually want to use.
Come on over to Study Hall and hang out with Katie McCurdy for a brief
hands-on Participatory Design workshop. She'll cover some basics - what
Participatory Design looks like, when to use it, etc - but the point is
to have fun getting first-hand experience as a workshop participant.
