Time Well Spent: Designing Social Spaces

Open the door to a deeper understanding of what motivates humans. Explore your own personal values, and learn about new tools for understanding other people's personal values. Entrepreneur and designer Shelby Stephens will lead this interactive session, incorporating games and group activities created by Joe Edelman, founder of the Time Well Spent Movement. The bleeding edge of design theory, these ideas are now being taught to some of the world's most elite design teams at companies like Facebook.

What will we do?

  • Attendees will participate in group activities, a series of engaging interactive games, somewhat similar to improv
  • This is not a lecture, panel or presentation.
  • DO attend this session if you are interested in how and why design impacts lives, societies and institutions in both positive and negative ways
  • DO NOT attend this session if you aren't comfortable participating in group activities, if you don't like openly sharing your thoughts in a group setting, or if you aren't willing to talk about your emotions with strangers

What you can expect from attending?

  • Better understand how your designs can support people's values, instead of coercing them into behavior that runs contrary to their core desires
  • Explore the importance of human values and respecting the best interests of the people who encounter your designs
  • Discover new meta-principles that will inform your design work, whether that's graphic, ux, architectural, policy, or otherwise
