Design for Health

Abstract

A global group (funders, implementers, and designers) who are committed to the shared vision of design as a means to achieve global health goals.  

"For global health practitioners, we hope to provide resources and guidance that increase the understanding, appropriate use, and value of design as a complementary approach to addressing the challenges we all encounter in our work.  For the design community, our aim is to better communicate design’s value within the global health community, to clarify how design can integrate into global health programming, to attract the best talent, and to support their engagement in global health.  For the global community, we strive to listen to the people we seek to impact and include them as participants in the design and implementation of holistic and measurable global health interventions."

Digital Habitats and Communities of Practice Resources

Abstract

Etienne and Beverly Wegner- Trayner are thought leaders in the area of social learning and communities of practice (COP).  COPs are formed by people who engage in a process of collective learning in a shared domain of human endeavor: a tribe learning to survive, a band of artists seeking new forms of expression, a group of engineers working on similar problems, a clique of pupils defining their identity in the school, a network of surgeons exploring novel techniques, a gathering of first-time managers helping each other cope. Communities of practice are groups of people who share a concern or a passion for something they do and learn how to do it better as they interact regularly.

Factors Required for Successful Future Research in Decision Making

Abstract

This report identifies and discusses the reasons for successes and failures in the use of futures research for timely decisions. "Foresightning activities" can result in varied impacts to organizations (or society), most of which are very difficult to measure. Therefore, "foresighting organizations tend to rely on high-level buy-in and public legitimization as signs of their effectiveness".
