Design in action: workshops

Workshop background

A central philosophy of people-centred design is that it is imperative to fully understand other people's experience, needs and values. We may think that we know what these are, but really these assumptions are limited by both our own internal filters and by what we have been told. Fundamental to this is the need to understand the domain, especially the people, by completing detailed research. The purpose of this workshop was to start gathering information from people about their experience of the common law process. The information volunteered to us helps us gain a better picture and understanding of that experience. From this information we are able to delve into this experience and what is driving that experience.

Over the course of the project we held two rounds of workshops with our stakeholders. The first workshop was to better understand the ecosystem and the experiences within it.

These pages present some of the information that we have obtained from our initial workshop and the results of our analysis of that information. The attendees at our workshop included: employers; unions; a single worker; plaintiff lawyers; and, panel lawyers.
