Eudaemonic Design as a Co-created Approach to Health and Well-being: An Exemplar Case with Older Adults at HomeCommunity WorkshopJenna MikusDec 13, 20222 - 3pm ETHome is central to who we are as humans. It shapes us. At a time when COVID-19-related physical distancing has prompted a global live/work/play from home pervasiveness, there is a growing demand to conceptualize how homes can encourage flourishing health and well-being. Developing this understanding is especially necessary when contemplating the impact on vulnerable demographics, such as the rapidly growing older adult population who desire to age-in-place but do not necessarily have the infrastructure and support needed to do so. Based on co-designed futuring activities conducted with older adults and designers, this research focuses on understanding what a flourishing home could look and feel like when building on the neo-Aristotelian concept of eudaemonia (literally defined as eu (good or health) + daimon (true self)), which correlates to people being the best versions of themselves. Eudaemonic well-being has evolved in the field of psychology as a means of proactively designing for flourishing health and well-being via Self Determination Theory, but it has yet to be explored in a built environment context. By considering eudaemonia as a worldview, this research examines how home-based design can prompt optimal health and well-being—not only by applying the resulting Eudaemonic Design model and principles to the home environment but also by following a respectful design approach to precipitate virtually-engaged participants to feel empowered, experience agency, and act as their best eudaemonic selves.

Human-robot interaction for inclusive coding educationCommunity WorkshopMaysa Borges GamaNov 29, 20222 - 3pm ET

Educational Robotics is a widely researched and applied field, but most robotics courses for children and young are not designed or adapted for learners with disability. This context is even less explored when we observe the use of social robots for education since most human-robot interactions designed for people with disability are focused in rehabilitation, mobility, or diagnosis. Robots, especially social robots, can act as powerful tools for teaching coding to school-aged children with special needs. In this meeting, I am going to present a status report on my master's course project that seeks to adapt the Weavly platform experience into a human-robot interaction.

CTA Image inspectionDesign CritCarenJuly 5, 20222 - 3pm ET

Video Recording

The Canadian Typography Archives website requires an image inspection function that allows a user to magnify an artifact and pan over all parts of the artifact. 

Here is a link to an example of image inspection we are seeing as an exemplar experience using mouse functionality 

The CTA team has had some discussion and noted the following:

  • WCAG 2.1 (note AODA references WCAG 2.0)
  • What to do:
    • Provide controls that perform same behaviour as the mouse
    • When image opens buttons appear and are in the focus order
  • Mobile: pinching, alternative is zoom in zoom out and button controls as well.
  • concern: Buttons for keyboard manoeuvre may not be a smooth experience

We look forward to the discussion!

Description:

Emilia Sanches is a Ph.D. candidate who's coming to IDRC to develop part of her research. This community workshop intends to contextualize her research and her preliminary results. She'll briefly introduce what are 3D printed audio-tactile graphics and proceed to talk about what she is doing and what her next steps are. People are encouraged to ask questions and discuss the topic.

Dobble Debate

Description:

Dobble Debate: debating with a difference, is a game that facilitates discussions and learning about human difference. The game employs the powers of play and humor to catalyze open discussion and compassionate thinking around topics that are often considered taboo. Players are challenged to rethink assumptions they may have around what it means to be disabled or have lived different experiences from their own.

Dobble Debate recognizes that every individual’s lived experience is different, and changes significantly based on their current environment. Therefore, we explicitly acknowledge D/deafness, disability, differing abilities , autism, and neurodiversity plus (DDDAND+). This acronym does not cover all the diverse identities usually lumped under ‘disability’; we are using it to draw attention to the variety of human experience. The label of ‘disability’ runs the risk of minimizing the diversity of lived differences.

GitHub Repo

Description:

The CareWheels Living Lab demonstrated the value of engaging people living independently with severe disabilities to design the CareBank, a peer-to-peer Telecare platform for their mutual benefit. Together we learned which Internet of Things (IoT) technologies worked well, and more meaningfully, we learned how to design Mobile and IoT technologies to help people work well together. Please join us for a Community Meeting presentation about the CareBank Platform and Design Crit about the CareBank App. The CareBank Project won a National Academy of Medicine Healthy Longevity Innovation Catalyst Award.

Using LiveCode to go from prototype to appWorkshopMartin KoobAug 17, 2021

Video Recording

Description:

This will be an interactive, hands on workshop where you will learn how to use LiveCode, an open source IDE,  to prototype an interface, add code to the interface components and build an app that you could deploy on multiple platforms. Be ready to try a different paradigm using an easy to understand English like language and an IDE that lets you run your prototype/app as you build it. Download the IDE before the workshop if you want to follow along on your own Mac, Windows or Linux machine.

Description:

The goal of the Canadian Typography Archives (CTA) is to create a free and open dedicated online space for documenting the histories of type and typography in Canada, whether currently public, privately held, still to be discovered, or not yet acknowledged or represented. To begin with the site will focus on pre-digital histories (approximately before 1985). 

On July 27th, we presented mid-fidelity wireframes of the CTA header and footer and received good feedback on ways to improve the functionality to meet accessibility guidelines. Figma File from the session

As an extension of the session, we are looking to center the discussion around the individual artifact (content) pages and get feedback on various elements within the layout in regards to different interaction states, content layout and overall functionality.

Description:

During our work on Balloons and Static Electricity we ended up creating an audio tool to help us iterate on what wounded and worked best. I’ll update everyone on the progress since the last Design Crit and discuss the difficulties we had and the decisions we made during the process. 

Demo

Click on the PhET logo at the bottom left and then “Options” from that popup. This will allow you to use the audio tool to adjust the sound of the interaction between the charged balloon and the wall.

VideoLinkwell, streamlining the workflow in an interactive video eLearning appDesign CritMartin KoobJul 13, 2021

Description:

Martin Koob will demo his SaaS application VideoLinkwell. It is used in Sign Language interpreter training to record a learner's interpretation of a video sample and then allow teachers to give  feedback by annotating the resulting video at various time points in the video with video or text comments. The goal is to facilitate and streamline the process of providing feedback in Sign Language. He is looking for feedback on the UX and workflow for teachers and and learners in creating, sharing, assessing and reviewing their projects. For more information on the application see VideoLinkwell.com

Schools ask every student to achieve the same level of proficiency, but each student begins with a different set of knowledge and skills. The Learning Navigator meets each student exactly where they are and navigates them to their learning goals."
