Interaction Design Day — discussing ethics and responsibility
We all want to be more responsible, ethical, and equitable in our design decisions, but it’s often hard to find the time or mutual support to develop these ideas. Please join us for a special World Interaction Design Day where we’ll dedicate an evening to diving into design ethics in practice.
We’ll begin with a discussion of the latest developments in the fast-changing ethical tech and design movements, before moving into three open conversation sessions. In the first, you’ll discuss a contemporary design ethics issue in detail, learning how to understand and argue ethical cases with compelling reasoning. Then, a chance to discuss your own professional ethical challenges with fellow designers in a private, confidential environment. Finally, we reconvene as a group to discuss how interaction, UX, and product designers can push for change in environments that don’t always prioritise ethics and responsibility.
The evening will be facilitated by technology ethicist and interaction designer Cennydd Bowles.
