Values and design and technology: exploring an issue
conference contributionposted on 08.05.2006, 15:23 authored by Ruth Conway, Anne Riggs
The two presenters will deliver a dialogue which will explore the value judgements made, especially, around a particular issue, i.e. the value of recycling, or the need to recycle materials. Initially they will suggest possible technological projects and, as a consequence, explore the knowledge, skills and value judgements likely to be involved. The presentation will pursue the following steps: exploring the issue using stimulation material and information, including ideas from different cultures; suggesting possible technology projects; highlighting value judgements that would need to be taken; deciding appropriate criteria; suggesting strategies for widening the evidence that might be taken into account, clarifying perspectives and facing up to value conflicts.
