Beyond Problem-Solving: Re-Imagining Workshop Materials

Allison Edwards, Hannah Korsmeyer

Monash University, Australia

Design has a rich history of being framed as a problem-solving activity (Simon, 1995). However, this does not fully capture the plurality of diverse practices designers use to engage with complex challenges in creative ways. As we seek to design more joyful and affirming workshops for diverse audiences, we can also re-imagine the roles played by the co-design materials we select or create, beyond functioning as tools for problem-solving. This workshop introduces a framework that leverages the potentially playful and pedagogically rich co-facilitation performed by these materials, and encourages participants to re-image the role materials play in their own participatory practices.

Please note: We will be using Zoom and Miro, participants are not required to have a personal account. Participants in this workshop are asked to come prepared with an image of materials they use in their practices that they would be happy to share and discuss with the group.
