HCDE 298 – Inclusive Design (3) Th 1130-220
Will satisfy DIV requirement.
How do we design inclusively? What does inclusive mean, and what are the practices that undergird building an inclusive society? What are the ethical implications of “inclusivity,” and how can we evaluate them? In this course, we will survey a range of methods in design and engineering that examine, support, and interrogate these issues. This is a studio course, we will work hands on, at scale, with these methods. Students can expect a fast-paced environment where we will try to enact inclusive methods, reﬂect on their capacities to broaden design and engineering goals, and to critique and evaluate their eﬀectiveness from a variety of perspectives. You will learn about current practices related to the topic from both academic and industry practitioners to develop your own ideas about inclusive practices and eﬀorts.
