In December 2018, the Delft Design for Values (DDfV) Institute has launched its own lecture series. In this series of lunch lectures, we will bring you up to speed on fundamental design for values topics:

  • As a designer or engineer, what do you need to know about design for values?
  • What does it take to successfully use values in your design process?
  • What is the current state of affairs and what are the challenges in framework, tools and methodology that research still needs to address?

For each lecture an expert on the topic will be invited, giving you the opportunity to ask the questions that are on your mind. All topics in this series will be overarching and independent of field of work or application domain. The events are open to all TU Delft researchers (all others upon request, whenever there are spots left).

The series will start with lectures on each of DDfV’s four key themes:

  1. Value operationalization (operationalizing values for design purposes)
  2. Value conflicts (dealing with value conflicts as a designer)
  3. Value dynamics (dealing with long-term value changes as a designer)
  4. Value assessment (assessing value realization in design outcomes)

Lecture Program

We aim at organizing a Fundamentals lecture twice a year. Keep an eye on this page for updates!

DDfV Fundamentals: Value Operationalisation

4 December 2018 @ 12:30 - 14:00

A lecture by expert Ibo van de Poel about value operationalisation, with Q&A and discussion. How do we give value such as privacy, autonomy, well-being or democracy a central role in our projects by translating them into design requirements?

A lecture by expert Elisabeth Lex about value assessment, with Q&A and discussion. How do we evaluate to what extend values are realized in our design and engineering outcomes, and what role do these insights play in the design process?
