Speculative Design for Innovation Workshop: Ethical Innovation

Thursday, May 05, 2022 | 6:00 PM-7:00 PM
Part 3 of a 4 Part Series

Design thinking is a popular tool, however, it often only leads to slight improvements on an existing design. How might we deliberately cultivate practices that stop us from optimizing the past, and instead, help us to envision the future we want to approach? Speculative Design is a toolkit for innovation that considers possible futures for technology, society, and business.

Throughout this workshop series, participants will learn how to harness the tools of speculative design for creating true innovation in their field. They will explore a variety of trends and technologies, learn about different applications of speculative design, and generate several prototypes of possible futures.

In this Speculative Design for Innovation Workshop Ethical Innovation, we will introduce ethical design and postphenomenology in terms of social innovation. Participants will learn how to use speculative design to understand and rethink social structures of work, politics, etc.

You are welcome to attend even if you missed the previous workshops in this series!
