This video provides an overview of participatory design workshops, which are sometimes also called co-creation sessions. The sessions include users, designers, developers, and business decision makers to ideate solutions for tough user experience problems.
[Voiceover] Participatory design workshops are collaboration sessions between users, designers, developers, and other business decision makers. The whole team will focus on creating solutions for a predefined problem, and there is immediate identification of user needs and issues, business considerations, and technical limitations. The tasks you perform in the design workshops might vary, but typically the only tools you'll need are writing utensils, paper, sticky notes, whiteboards and a place for the whole team to gather. Frog has a great presentation on conducting these workshops, and UX Booth and UX Mag provide detailed overviews of other Co-Design methods.
