Papers & Practical methods

ESC-knowledge grows! We are happy to share knowledge that contributes to Systemic Co-Design – and the collection is growing steadily. In this way, we use our collective creativity in approaching systemic questions in complex assignments. Within the Expertnetwork Systemic Co-design, the partners develop tools, practical methods and papers. We make this knowledge and these tools created by our network available online for use. The following knowledge is available:

Do you work with students and educational professionals and do you see opportunities to improve education together? The Students as Partners (SaP)method helps to tackle this in a practical way. Jürg Tholke, Senka Rebac and Martijn Mesman designed instruments that promote dialogue and involvement: a Students as Partners Mega Canvas, Dialogue Quest game and the SaP Radar online.

Would you like to know more about bridging the gap between design research and practice? Then read the article Bridging the research-practice gap: understanding the knowledge exchange between design research and social design practices by Wina Smeenk, Marieke Zielhuis and Koen van Turnhout. The researchers examine the Co-design canvas method in a social design case study.

To tackle complex issues and transitions you need multiple perspectives or lenses. Our goal as the Systemic Co-design Expertise Network (ESC) is to contribute to transition issues from the lenses of systems thinking and design and the collective. In this white paper Systemic co-design: navigating complex issues we describe how we do this. It offers an insight into the ESC working method: practice-oriented research into ways in which these three lenses can reinforce each other and be further developed together.
