Abstract

The present paper reports on the experience of co-designing a lecture on co-design with a group of master students in the process of learning about co-design. Based on the educational system in place at the institution, the lecturer proposed a learning experience aimed to engage the students by addressing
their learning interest within the scope of the course. The experience is described in terms of methods, tools and outcomes, and it is presented as a pilot on how involving the students in the design of educational format can result in their engagement and distribute the learning experience also outside the classroom.
This is presented as a pilot to apply for further exploration on how the use of co-design more systematically in education can improve the learning experience and result in a safer and more challenging learning environment. Eventually, a reflection on the scalability of the experience and its iteration is proposed.
