New thesis on how users can be involved in the development of a web-based support system for young carers

News: May 15, 2013

Friday May 24th Mikael Elf presents his thesis "User involvement in designing a web-based support system for young carers - inspiring views and systemic barriers". The thesis connects to one interest in the LETStudio, i.e. how new media technologies can contribute to new forms of knowledge production and empower individuals and groups in need of support. The studies in the dissertation have their origin in the research project PS Young Support. This project aimed to develop and evaluate a web-based support system (WBSS) for young people living close to someone with mental illness. To make this support relevant, and to achieve legitimacy and trustworthiness it was found important to cooperate with prospective users in developing it through a participatory design (PD) process. The dissertation follows two lines of investigation. One of these relates to how PD can inspire new views on design, while the other is about systemic barriers to involvement of users in the design process.
