Product, service and system designers (from local and international agencies), social innovators, academic researchers, and multiple other experts from (non-)profit organizations and governmental institutions will guide you through this summer school within the context of health care.
Together with !Drops, the University of Antwerp (Fac. of Design Sciences | Dept of Product Development) and SDN Belgium, we offer a very hands-on, inspiring and engaging 5-day programme including the following themes:
1. Human Centered Design and caregiving
Fast forward through the HCD process, inspiration – ideation – implementation. Case study background (methods, process and outcome); round table discussions with experts and desk research corner; ideation, prototyping, testing and pitching.
2. Energy Lab on personal wellbeing
An inspiring workshop on energy work/private life balance at an unknown location (focus on group dynamics & creativity).
3. Virtual reality (in general and in care context for kids)
Debate night / soirée with keynotes, panel discussions, case inspiration, etc. (getting inspired and learn from good/bad practices locally & abroad).
4. Digital storytelling in healthcare context
Case study (autism, LT-hospitalization, …) and hands-on workshop (theme sessions) by ‘Numan’ and concrete tools for implementation.
5. Media and design research in health care
Case studies (e.g., ‘living longer at home’ European project), design & implementation issues (with e.g., digital, augmented, IoT) and related workshops.
