Co-Designing a STEM-based VR Game For and With Neurodiverse Learners

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule, view media, leave feedback and see who's attending!

As part of developing and researching a virtual reality (VR) game intended to increase access to and broaden participation in STEM learning, designers and researchers from [Institution] and interns from [Institution], a post-secondary institute for learners with autism, ADHD, and other learning differences, are immersed in an intensive co-design process. Co-design embraces the ‘nothing about us without us’ movement by ensuring stakeholder voices, in this case neurodiverse learners, have a prominent role throughout the design process. In this poster, we’ll describe our co-design process, key lessons learned, important game-design decisions, and the experiences and perspectives of individual co-design participants. Recommendations will be provided to help guide others who are interested in implementing a co-design process of their own.

I'm interested in leveraging games and play to get people outside or to better connect people to real world experiences. My projects include STEMlandia XR, SportsLab, and Mission to Europa (a VR mystery).
