This is a hands-on prototyping session that requires no prior design experience. Using sticky notes, markers, and templates, participants will design and evaluate interfaces for donating household energy consumption data to a local data cooperative for the purpose of fighting climate change. Implementing shared data ownership models and governance structures is a tricky user experience (UX) design challenge. This collaborative workshop will produce examples to prompt discussion. The methodology is appropriate for multiple data governance domains, and participants will gain experience with lo-fidelity prototyping and leave with materials they could use to run a future session on their own. However these specific prototypes will prompt discussion specifically related to energy usage and climate change: how manage data visibility and privacy, what kinds of user preferences are appropriate for different contexts, and what emerging design principles can support implementing collective ownership of data.
