Unpacking co-design - Free event (via Zoom)

AAG Vic Division Student & Early Career Group (SECG) event

With an interest in building connections with members of the AAG Vic Student & Early Career Group (SECG) and sharing research experiences we invite you to join us for a session to learn about co-design.

In the session Associate Professor Gabrielle Brand, will share her experiences and top tips of using co-design in health and education research. In her research Gabrielle has created a series of reflective learning resources titled Depth of Field that uses photographs, narratives and collaborative dialogue to surface unexplored stereotypes and challenge learners through reflection to consider new perspectives around stigmatised patient groups to more humanistic models of care.

Following Gabrielle sharing her top tips, we’ll invite you to ask questions and discuss with fellow members your own experiences and potential plans to use co-design in your own research.

We hope you’ll come along and join us for this informative and interactive session to learn about co-design.

  • Learn about how to do co-design
  • Consider how to use co-design to challenge single disease approaches to care of older adults
  • Understand how co-design can be applied to your research
  • Explore co-design as a way of engaging older adults in community
  • Network with other Victorian AAG SECG members
