Call for Participation

Call for Adults

We invite researchers and practitioners, with experience and/or interest in (distributed online) co-design with children, to join our 7 hours hybrid workshop at NordiCHI 2022, in person or virtually. We will work in an on-line design space which was created by 62 children from Namibia, Malaysia and Finland. To create enabling online design contexts and techniques for children, workshop participants will share challenges, experienced or anticipated, in co-designing with children online and work in teams on strategic solutions; participants will also have the chance to co-facilitate an online design session with children from across the globe, followed by a structured reflection and future research prospects discussion. We hope to create new connections between researchers and practitioners to continue sharing and start new collaborations. Our website will be maintained for pre- and post-workshop communication. If you are interested, please fill the application form for participation.

18 participants will be selected on a first-come first-serve basis after acceptance of their individual position paper, which should contain the following information:

a)Experienced or anticipated challenges in co-designing with children on-line.
