GAAD 2023 - C3: Trauma-informed design field-work in practice - Eriol Fox
Eriol Fox, they/them, PhD researcher and Human Rights Centered Designer
When we think about the future and progression of design, how do we think in a way that explicitly includes places and communities still "coming online" and how technology and society operates differently across borders. The talk summarises recent research and UX design for humanitarian projects and how to approach difficult topics when researching these areas or these countries along with some tips for those looking to work or learn more about how to conduct UX research in these places. The case studies from this talk come from NGO based, industry practice.About Eriol
