Inclusive Design considers the full range of human diversity to deliver better experiences for everyone and challenges us as designers and researchers to reinvent our practice. Using examples and reflection, this talk examines assumptions in our design practices to reveal ways in which we unintentionally create exclusion. This becomes the start of new approaches that shift our design practices so that we support inclusion right from the start.
~90 min with participatory activities.
