Mission 9 Update: Looking Ahead

Hello everyone,

You may have noticed that we’ve not published any new items about inclusive design since the summer. At that time, I announced we would be delving into a more practical approach to the topic, rather than just exploring the theoretical aspects as we had done before. The intention is to do explore this topic through my PhD research project about Developing digital interventions in mental health care: using a multi-perspective approach.

Since then, I’ve been very busy with the exploration phase of a project focused on designing an empathetic chatbot for sexual assault, other interesting projects, and responsibilities. Hence, the silence from my end.

My team and I have come up with a good plan on how to keep you updated on our progress. We intend to explore the practical aspect of inclusive design, by approaching this through the lens of various groups that all experience the various challenges and opportunities of inclusive design in multiple contexts aside from mental healthcare.

Over the next few months, we will be speaking to professionals, students, teachers, and users, to establish what is important to them, and to get a sense of the possible common ground among these groups. We hope to inform you on the varying perspectives on this topic, to help your design process, regardless of your role within the User Experience domain.

The first thing we will touch on in the new year is the professional’s perspective, looking at some tangible examples of big wins in the inclusivity of your design that generally should not take much effort to implement.

I want to thank you all for your support, you will surely hear from us soon.
Wishing you all a very happy and peaceful holiday and see you in 2024!
