from the article:
Participatory Design has developed methods that empower people
with impairments to actively take part in the design process. Many
designed artifacts for this target group likewise aim to empower
their users in daily life. In this workshop, we share and relate best
practices of both empowering methods and empowering designs.
Participants are therefore invited to bring along cases of designing
for- and with people with sensory-, cognitive- or social
impairments. Our workshop consists of three parts: (1)
Foregrounding empowering elements in PD methods using
method stories, containing the backstory of a method put into
practice; (2) Reflecting on technological artifacts, exploring the
empowering qualities of person-artifact-context interaction; (3)
constructing a critical synopsis of the various relationships
between empowering products and -methods.
