Christina Lundsgaard, Carolina Souza Da Conceição, Johanna Eriksson

Abstract


Are you interested in designing new ways of networking at the Nordes conference with fellow researchers?
Do you want to explore and discuss the so called “workspacelab” as a platform for user involvement?
This workshop invites participants to explore a particular version of the design:lab called the workspace:lab. With a focus on methods like probekits, design games and experience prototyping the participants will experience what it is like being part of the design:lab as “users” and they will be exposed to the different equipment and tools used in the “laboratory of change”.
Though the main focus of the workshop is to explore the workspace:lab, the actual output of the workshop is also relevant. The participants will be encouraged to codesign examples of new ways of networking at conferences, which could benifit the Nordes community in the future.
