Plan

Things to help you get you started: Informed consent, research planning, workshop design and things to consider when creating collaborative spaces.


Listen

Tools and techniques to support conversations, talking and explaining: Diaries and probes, provocations, cards sorting approaches.


Make

Ways of making tangible things explain how things work today or co-create alternatives: Maps, collages, models,  mock-ups and lean prototypes.


Do

Facilitate fun and get a bit weird by acting out ideas: Role playing and improvisation, games, props and simulations to pressure test thinking.
