Ideologically-Embedded Design: Community, collaboration and artefact

Abstract : Human values in HCI design have been studied in HCI research as additional design criteria, in the Value Sensitive Design (VSD) approach, and as foundations of the design approach itself, in Participatory Design (PD). In both cases, values are seen as properties of individuals, groups and society. This paper introduces the Ideologically-Embedded Design (IED) approach that situates values on the intermediary level of analysis of communities. IED is illustrated by the analysis of two case studies of communities, the online epistemic community Wikipedia and the socio-technical system of cohousing projects. In each case, the attendant value systems are described, together with the way that they operate with respect to the co-design process and the design artefact, which corresponds to the community designing itself. The role of values in decision-making and artefact design is discussed. In conclusion, approaches to supporting IED are discussed.
