Students work on finalizing group presentations and reflecting on what it means to “finish” a project well.
Obj 2: Students will discuss implementation, sustainability, and other long-term challenges in regards to codesign processes
Obj 3: Students will learn, practice, and hone basic codesign skills
Guiding Question: What is next in the codesign process?
Check In/Group Discussion:
- Class will share their experience with the nonlinear pathway of prototyping and user testing during their codesign projects.
- Each group will provide an update of the work and discuss what their projects could look like if they had more time to ideate and prototype.
Purpose: Students develop understanding of co-design processes in conversation with existing power structures utilizing their burgeoning codesign experience, case studies, and readings.
Key Questions & Topic
Prototypes to Products
Preparing for Project Presentations
Obligations of designer and stakeholders
How do you finish well?
(with stakeholders, finish iteration, close things out appropriately)
Guiding Question: How do we share our design journey?
Preparing presentations: (45 MIN)
- Students will begin creating short concise slide show presentation sharing their design journey to be presented the following day.
- Presentation should include their:
- Problem Statement, HMW Question
- Stakeholders/Co-Designer Community Profiles + Asset Maps
- User Personas + User Journeys
- Ideation Workshop + Insights
- 1st Prototypes + UserTesting Feedback
- Second iteration of Prototypes
- Theoretical vision for the Future of the Project (short term vs. long term next steps)
Recommend Canva.com for accessible/easy-to-use presentation templates.
Purpose: Students will practice documenting and presenting their ongoing codesign work across various audiences.
Closing Activity (Reflection & Evaluation)
Guiding Question: How do we finish well?
Class Check In/ Discussion: (25 MIN)
- Students will check in with class to share their progress on project presentations and troubleshoot any challenges if necessary.
- Instructor will answer any remaining questions or advice they have regarding presentation or overall codesign project methods.
- Instructor reminds students that stakeholders are at the center of the codesign process, and asks how we finish well with them as we approach the end of our codesign process?
- Students will complete rainstorm activity found in Day 9 Miro Activity to prepare students for their more in depth written response (Miro Link here).
Purpose: Students will discuss the implications of ending a codesign ie. obligations to stakeholders, producing deliverables, and considering sustainability and implementation of projects.
Post Session Work
- Group Work: Students will finish project presentation asynchronously and submit it. Students should be ready to present the following day.
- Reshare example of presentation: Summer Fellows or Graduate students previous work.
- Individual Work: Students will write a 200 minimum reflection in which they create a plan to finish well with their stakeholders. Ie. How do you continue the relationship after the project is over? Or after you as the codesigner transition out?
