Evaluating creativity support in co-design workshops

Dove, G. & Jones, S. (2013). Evaluating creativity support in co-design workshops. Paper presented at the CHI 2013 Workshop: Evaluation Methods for Creativity Support Environments, 27th April - 2nd May 2013, Paris, France.


Participatory, co-design and creativity workshops can lead to more useful, usable and innovative systems design. However, evaluating the effectiveness of the creativity support provided by different technologies and workshop techniques is challenging. This is especially so when evaluation takes place during the workshop and maintaining a creative atmosphere is important. In this paper we briefly outline the development of one simple method of evaluation we have designed whilst studying the use of information visualizations within generative design workshops. Here we discuss how reflective postcards are used to replace questionnaires as a way to collect participants’ responses.
