A survey of the literature confirms that engaging with
human values when designing technology is an important
undertaking. However, despite these efforts, there is still
considerable divergence and a lack of agreement in how
we conceptualize and approach values during technology
design. This workshop seeks to bring expertise from
different perspectives on design to explore theoretical,
methodological, and relational issues when working with
values in design. The aim is to better conceptualize,
understand and establish ways we can work more
systematically and productively with human values in
future designs.
