Information Design for the Common Good | Lunch & Learn
Aug 8 @ 12:15 pm – 1:45 pm
Information Design for the Common Good | Lunch & Learn @ Boardroom, Dahdaleh Institute Offices

Designers are increasingly involved in the world of social good. Traditionally installed in commercial sectors, they are now collaborating with scientists, researchers and others non-designers with their own knowledge-base and processes. These interdisciplinary encounters are often new, exciting and challenging.

Drawing on her experiences of this phenomenon, and on the research behind her upcoming book Information Design for the Common Good, Courtney Marchese will lead a Lunch & Learn on interdisciplinary design collaboration in global health.

Courtney Marchese is a professional designer with over a decade of experience specializing in data visualizations, information graphics, UX design, and usability studies. She is also an Associate Professor of Graphic + Interactive Design, teaching a wide range of design theory, research, and technical skills at the undergraduate and graduate level.

Report Back: COP25 & Internet Governance Forum @ Boardroom, Dahdaleh Institute for Global Health Research

November and December 2019 saw Dahdaleh Institute researchers at two major global events. At this seminar, they will share their experiences and insights garnered.

Global Health Foresighting Fellow Aria Ilyad Ahmad attended the 2019 Internet Governance Forum (IGF) in Berlin, where he hosted two panels, one of which was presented by the Dahdaleh Institute. Convened by the United Nations, the IGF serves to bring people together from various stakeholder groups as equals, in discussions on public policy issues relating to the Internet.

Postdoctoral Fellow Mark Terry attended COP25 in Madrid, Spain. Among the many activities he undertook while there, Dr. Terry premiered the film Happening to Us alongside the student filmmakers, a group of Inuit youth from Tuktoyaktuk, and presented awards to the winners of the Global Youth Video Competition.
