Malaysia PDC Place

English/ Translation coming soon

Where
Sibu, Sarawak, Malaysia
We will be using University College of Technology Sarawak’s campus garden area for face-to-face and online activities.

When
During PDC2022 (1st Day): We will invite the speakers that are in our network to organise a doctoral talk. Target participants will be Early Career Researchers/students and practitioners. This will be a collaborative workshop of PDC and ipid-Asia Network as a way to promote PDC.

During PDC2022 (2nd Day): We will organise a workshop with local artisans and designers.

Why
Participatory Design has been very much in the realm of academics, and practitioners, such as in areas of user experience, user interface design, and moved into areas such as ICT4development. Yet there should be awareness and understanding from the different sectors in Malaysia and SouthEast Asia, not only academia and industry, but also from the government and even the general public. We wanted to create that understanding, especially amongst non-traditional “connoisseurs” of PD such as the government, will help to develop products and services which are more effective, efficient, and meet the needs of target groups. This engagement also helps in creating opportunities to involve communities who may be underserved, such as rural communities.

Looking at the previous proceedings of PDC, we can only find a very few contributions from Malaysia. Therefore by hosting, PDC Place in Malaysia we aim at growing new alliances with research communities and practitioners that allow for a structured exchange to inform change initiatives – local and around the world.
