The GLID method: Moving from design features to underlying values in co-design

23 Sep

This paper where I acted as a co-author is now online and can be downloaded for free till the end of November at science direct.

In this paper, we present the GLID method to integrate verbal, material and other co-design outcomes in a structured and coherent analysis. GLID aims to increase internal rigor and transparency in Participatory Design practices and wants to go beyond the surface level of ideas, by identifying participants’ values embedded in co-design outcomes. We discuss GLID’s theoretical groundings in multimodality and a values-led approach to Participatory Design, and present a case study with primary school children. This case study demonstrates how the different stages of the GLID method can be applied in practice. Based on the case study, we reflect on how GLID contributes to a holistic, situated and more empathic understanding in co-design practices.
