WHAT IS CODESIGN?
What does it look like? How can I learn about it?

CODESIGN
Experts and Non-Experts Working Together in the Design Development Process

Codesign
“The Creativity of Designers and People Not Trained in Design Working Together in the Design Development Process” - Elizabeth Sanders

CoDesign is Profoundly Democratic
It enables the ideas of non-designers to be transmitted in designerly ways to broader audiences, helping laypeople to communicate their vision for future technologies.

Central Design Problem
If ordinary people are a crucial part of the participatory design process, then why aren’t we sharing our research findings with them?

Central Design Problem
The growBot Symposium was conducted by a public university, supported in part by public funding. Why isn’t publicly-funded research freely available to the public?

Central Design Problem
We live in the age of digital communications ... why aren’t we using these tools ? What role can digital media play in suggesting new tools to talk about codesign?

WE BEGAN WITH THE COOKBOOK

COOKBOOK S
def: A collection of streamlined instructions, definitions, techniques

COMMUNITY COOKBOOKS
A curated collection of information from experts and non-experts, standardized and published in a single location

HOW COULD WE REMEDIATE THE FORMAT OF THE COMMUNITY COOKBOOK TO COMMUNICATE CODESIGN PRINCIPLES?
