Co-design refers to a process by which practitioners and researchers come together to either adapt or create and test new curriculum materials, museum exhibits, programs, or technology tools. Typically, co-design teams must invent new formats for working together, because outside the co-design context, the more usual division of labor involves researchers “designing” while practitioners “test” and “implement.” There is no one way to engage in co-design, but a hallmark of co-design is that practitioners' expertise and input is valued and sought throughout the research and development process.

The resources in this bundle include research and practical tools for organizing co-design.
