PhD Course Participant’s Report

by Connie Svabo

Participatory Design was a common theme of interest among the 16 PhD students and 4 senior scholars who participated in the PhD course Designing Human Technologies, organized by Roskilde University, May 26-28, 2013.

Course Participant Kasper Rodil, a Ph.D.-student at Aalborg University who works with the situated management of indigenous knowledge through participatory design and co-creation of digital visualization, says:  “Besides the great food and beautiful location, the course offered PhD students who are interested in design and especially Participatory Design (PD) to meet and interact with each other and senior researchers. Some of many experiences to bring home were the theoretical discussions regarding the anchor points for our individual projects, a chance to exchange connections and share literature.”
