Abstract

In a historical moment in which the forms of learning have globally undergone substantial changes due to the Covid-19 pandemic, conceiving, promoting, and realizing in presence moments of extracurricular training for university students is actually challenging. The practical and established dynamics for conducting co-design workshops need to be re-imaged because they must respond to health rules and limitations, but without limiting the expressive freedom of the participants. Ensuring the right balance of spontaneity in the dynamics of collaboration and exchange of ideas avoiding generating situations with health risk factors is a challenge that requires a readjustment both in the number of participants eligible for workshops and in the design thinking techniques that can be effectively implemented as is or that must necessarily be modified. This is the challenge that the group of authors had to face when they fielded, for the first time since the beginning of the pandemic, a co-design initiative aimed at university design students, to meet the challenges outlined in the initiative Ctrl+, a project funded by Creative Europe Program inside the Distributed Design initiative, to implement the global network of Fab Lab promoting and improving the connection between makers and designers with the European market.
