Inclusive Design Guidelines - Follow-up Meeting Dec 14, 2015

Potential Categories for Cards:

  1. Values (?) / Qualities / Concepts?
    • disability as mismatch
    • personalisable/one-size-fits-one
    • configurable (more technical?)
    • flexibility
    • open (open source, staying open)
    • collaborative
    • co-design
    • self-determination
    • self-knowledge
  2. Techniques (ILDH)
    • support flexible styling (CSS separate from markup, UIO)
    • label resources
    • support keyboard control
    • etc
  3. Examples
    • UIO
    • FD tool
    • Explore tool
    • etc
  4. Exercises
    • authoring game?
    • build a persona
    • matching game (needs/features)?
    • build a simple webpage
    • fix a webpage (e.g. add keyboard control)
  5. Test Your Knowledge
  • or we could break things down into Tools & Practice, e.g.
    • Tools (i.e. concrete things you can build or use in design)
      · UX Walkthroughs
      · User States and Contexts
      · Personalization tools (UIO, FD, etc.)
    • Practices 
      · Open design (i.e. community, participatory, co-design)
      · “Complicated personas” -- One person, many personas/contexts (i.e. risk of modelling people, importance of people with disabilities representing themselves--"nothing about us without us") 
  • how to facilitate perspective shift first - then introduce familiar design exercises / common design tools, incorporate milestones
  • start with questions? much like some of our presentations and workshops - get people thinking in new ways (when have you experienced a mismatch, etc)
  • beyond accessibility - more useful for more people - more marketable - motivation
  • how can cards embody inclusive design? 
    • e.g matching card game - could be matching person+context+goal with design features, or matching person+context+goal with another person’s need, etc
    • example of building scenarios as you're playing the game  - cards are limited, conveys idea of need and considerations of how to improve - get players to come up with various solutions?
  • how to cover more than just the digital? built environment too, physical products, also consider inclusive processes for communication (e.g. listservs), meetings, policy etc 
    • especially when considering P4A platform
    • (but need to emphasize added flexibility of the digital to provide configurability?)
