Abstract

The paper presents two case studies of methods that were used in practice with non-expert co-design groups. The methods draw on asset-based community development principles to fulfil a two-fold objective: first, to study co-design (derive knowledge about co-design), and second, to support co-design practice by building the capacity of those groups to carry out design tasks. The paper discusses how the two objectives are met in each case, and derives some general observations about co-design practice in the context of non-expert groups and the capabilities that need to be supported or nurtured. The paper contributes to the development of design research methods that have an impact on societal change.
