REGISTER: Informed Experiences, Designing Consent

REGISTER: Informed Experiences, Designing Consent
Saturday, April 6, 2019 - 9:30am

I'm excited to announce that registration for this symposium I pitched to the Center for the Study of Ethics in the Professions at Illinois Tech is happening! Please join us! The novelty of this event is the design sessions that draw from panels. In these sessions, all attendees will use this opportunity to prototype a design centered on consent.


Designs, whether implicitly or explicitly, cite core values that drive their development and marketing. Efficiency and profit are two common principles that push design. 

Informed Experiences, Designing Consent offers a space to consider centering consent as a core value of design. We invite creative individuals, researchers, ethicists, and designers, especially those with burning questions, critical theories, and insightful projects about design practices and consent, to join us for this one-day event on April 6, 2019 at Illinois Tech’s Downtown Campus (565 W. Adams)l. While we are talking about design and consent, we welcome people working on theoretical, reflective, and reception/audience perspectives of these concepts.

This symposium will use a “Learn, Make, Reflect” Model to interrogate the intersections of consent and design of interactive media and technologies. Here, we use panels, workshops, and discussion for attendees to prototype designs that center on consent and iterate on this process. We will provide simple prototyping materials for groups to collaborate on exploring the intersections of theory and practice in our maker-sessions.

Informed Experiences, Designing Consent is hosted by the Illinois Institute of Technology Center for the Study of Ethics in the Professions and the HASTAC Scholars fellowship program. It is organized by Michael Anthony DeAnda, Elisabeth Hildt, Kelly Laas, and Leilasadat Mirghaderi with generous sponsorship from the Coleman Foundation.
