Today my colleagues designers gathered to work on the topic I prepared. They are not all familiar with the concept of critical design/speculative design therefore it will be a challenge to convince them to take this approach (on the topic of telepresence).
Here is the slides I prepared to introduce the workshop session for this week.
On the critical design part, we had a discussion on its final aims comparing to design for “problem solving”, I had to convince them by stressing the relevance of using this approach for exploring alternatives and they compared it to R&D. The fact that it is also a practice used for engaging people into a reflective state had to come later, has a challenge to accomplish (later in the design process).
