I am interested in prototyping and developing a method to support both makers and users in enhancing empathy-building through long-term co-creation engagement. My research mainly concentrated on proposing this method as a means of facilitating the makers’ experience of the real user, which will help the makers deeply understand the “real” user’s experience. I want to pursue working in this method to focus on extending the replicability aspects in various sectors, specifically in the design for inclusion and in teaching and learning relationships.
