These are the videos from the original workshop launched in late 2015. New content is currently under development.
DiY Data Design launched with a simple idea. Build a digital workshop by listening to the challenges faced by researchers and evaluators in their day to day work. Then provide them with easy to digest, not overwhelming, support.
So we built a workshop together. The original workshop included three things.
1. We met regularly online to discuss each others everyday data design challenges.
2. I shared super short activities and video lessons to help participants practice and learn at their own pace.
3. I provided inspiration from external expert voices.
The content in this course includes many of the original activities, lessons, and inspiration. It's just in a self-paced format.
Follow through (when you have the time) and do the activities.
Then share your work.
