During my time as an academic assistant at CODE University, I was honored to participate in the Oberlinhaus IDEAL 4.0 project (Abkürzung für "Inklusives Digitales Arbeits(er)Leben" / Acronym for "Inclusive Digital Working Working Life"). The brief of the project was to co-design with vocational training academy Oberlinhaus a range of digital tools. The tools and mediated experiences should create inclusive and equitable opportunities through the journey from vocational training to workplace integration.
Over the course of my participation, our team created three participatory design workshops. My responsibility was to develop artifacts to mediate the workshops, which included a variety of visual elements. Due to the nature of the research, only selected works have been authorized for sharing. In total, more than 50 Illustrations were iterated which included storyboards, iconography & supporting visuals.
In addition to the illustrations, I participated in the project conducting secondary research in Winter 2021. Literary analysis covered topics on: Inclusive Design, Social Sustainability, Co-design, Empowering Young Adults with Inclusion Needs, Psychosocial and Cognitive Inclusion. Papers were archived in a Zotero database with linked annotations & structured analysis. I was honored to be part of a project with such a brilliant team, robust inclusive methodology and social impact.
