Learning Café ACC27
Re-thinking Design for the Inclusion of Marginalised Learners - a Provocational Learning Café
Join this session and gain a new perspective by consciously designing for the inclusion of communities that are otherwise often under-represented. The result of interventional sessions like these can reach far beyond your normal conference experience, as it might impact upcoming procurement decisions, teaching practices and product design decisions. By asking “how to design for uncertainty?” and by offering provocations from various realms and sectors, we aim to unpack these multi-layered questions, in order to enable you to take more ethical, sustainable and conscious decisions in your everyday work-life.
