Dilemma Co-Exploration Toolkit

This toolkit is created to serve as a creativity tool when designers and domain experts work together to identify dilemmas. Co-exploration is a procedure that can be used to collaboratively formulate hypothetical dilemmas in a specific domain. The toolkit includes two sets of cards to facilitate this procedure – these are goal cards and product cards. The card-sets are used in combination with two infographics – Map of Dilemmas and 24 Universal Human Goals. The instructions booklet give directions on two exercises to be carried out using goal cards and product cards, and where appropriate, the infographics.

If you feel the need to better understand certain aspects, please refer to the PhD thesis titled Me against myself: Addressing personal dilemmas through designor its complementary booklet, The Book of Dilemmas for Designers.
