1. Applying the empathic handover approach.
2. Extension of user methods.
3. Role of empathy in design.
The aim of this elective was to research and design for the topics mourning and dementia. In particular, we were required to apply the empathic handover approach, which meant that we switched topics and team members halfway the elective. During the first half we tried to emphasize with the topic of mourning by a qualitative study. After the empathic handover workshop, I switched to the topic of dementia and with the new team we created the concept ‘A little bird told me’, which allows to capture the characteristics of a demented person by means of audio, in order to save the cherished memories of a loved one.
