What is a Digital Design Charette?

A digital charrette is a collaborative and creative process that brings together diverse stakeholders to develop innovative solutions to complex problems. Over an intensive period of brainstorming and discussion, multidisciplinary teams use digital tools to realize concepts and deliverables that align with a central theme or challenge. Participants are encouraged to tackle problems using design thinking methodologies and collaborative design practice, gaining new perspectives that can generate innovative outputs.  

Designing Together  

The charrette will use co-design to ensure that each person present is heard. We will design together, to ensure the results meet the needs of our stakeholders and are usable. We will re-think accessible education placement component to address the needs of all stakeholders and begin to tackle complex systemic challenges. Some of these challenges might be 

  • Ableism/stigma, 
  • additional workload, and 
  • diverse institutional requirements.  

What will you be doing?

Each session will be designed to get you to actively collaborate with other participants. Therefore, it is important that you have access to a computer during the session. Facilitators will help capture your thoughts, but there will be moments of typing, and screensharing.  

In order to get value from the charrette process, it is important to participate on all four sessions. If you are unable to do so, the AcTinSite team will be providing an overview of the previous sessions at the next session. This will be a good opportunity to catch up and jump right in.
