This is a recording of the M&E Thursday Talk on February 2nd, 2017 as Rebecca Herrington led a discussion on “Using human centered design to break barriers in evaluation.”
In December 2016, DME for Peace helped lead the #BreakingBarriers conference and workshop in Cape Town to co-design solutions to barriers to participation & inclusion in evaluation.
In what was one of the first applications of the co-design process to peacebuilding, participants in Cape Town came together to collaborate and innovate tangible solutions to the barriers to participation and inclusion in peacebuilding evaluation. Through 4 days of conversation, prototyping, and refining, participants challenged themselves to embrace ambiguity as they tackled the issues of participation and inclusion.
In this webinar, Rebecca discussed why the co-design approach was used, how it was designed and applied to the peacebuilding field, and the solutions that the Cape Town workshop generated.
We were also be joined by participants from the conference & workshop who shared their opinion on co-design, reflections on the the conversations in Cape Town, and what they hope to do with their solutions moving forward.
