Hi I’m Andy
Where in the world are you?
I’m in the UK, specifically I work at Sheffield Hallam University
What stage of your career are you at?
I’m a greybeard. I’ve been working in user centred technology design for 28 years, in participatory design for 18 years, and in ICTD for 10+ years.
What are you current challenges?
The same as they have been for many years - working out how technologists, and particularly technology researchers with limited language skills and homes in the North can best make positive contributions to a participatory vision of sustainable human development.
What gets you fired up about technology and development?
People learning new creative responses to other people’s technology and devising ways to take control of tech to address their own challenges. Seeing technologists learn new ways of relating to other people, to technologies and to themselves.
Cats or dogs?
