Human-Centred Research and Design in Crisis

Studio Course: Human-Centred Research and Design in Crisis, Summer 2020
Course on Human-Centred Research & Design in Crisis, Summer 2020

This course was offered in summer 2020 at the Department of Computer Science at Aalto University, led by Prof. Nitin Sawhney and Magdalena Mihalache.

The course introduced students to understanding and engaging in crisis contexts, using human-centred design principles and participatory research methodologies in conjunction with domain experts, partner organizations and everyday citizens. The course will build on extensive research findings from inter-related disciplines of Human-Computer Interaction (HCI), Computer Supported Cooperative Work (CSCW), Participatory Design (PD), Participatory Action Research (PAR), A.I. and Crisis Informatics, among others to develop a range of conceptual, rigorous, creative, and pragmatic approaches towards inquiry and engagement in complex crisis contexts. >> Learn more
