Dynamics Associated to Tone in Workshop Facilitation

View all CfD Projects

The project delves into the intricate dynamics of facilitation, recognizing its pivotal role in fostering collaboration, creativity, and innovation within design processes. By focusing on the study of specific card games designed to enhance facilitation practices, the research aims to uncover the nuanced interplay between tone and facilitation outcomes. Emphasizing the significance of tone in communication and engagement, the project seeks to provide designers with valuable insights into how subtle variations in tone can profoundly influence group dynamics, decision-making processes, and overall participant satisfaction. By bridging the gap between theory and practice, this research holds immense potential to empower designers in leveraging facilitation techniques to drive meaningful outcomes and amplify the impact of their design interventions.
