Values in Design Council – Phase One

The Values-in-Design Council was a multi-disciplinary team of experts in values-in-design who worked alongside the four recipients of the first phase of the National Science Foundation’s Future Internet Architecture Initiative (FIA) large projects grants, announced August 31, 2010. Council members served as analysts and consultants to the FIA projects, helping to identify junctures in the design process in which values-critical technical decisions arise; locating design parameters and variations that differentially call into play relevant values; for and with respective projects, developing rich conceptual understandings of relevant values; for and with project investigators, operationalizing values to enable transition from values conceptions into design features; with FIA investigators, examining the interplay of values embodied in design with respective values embodied in law and policy; and where possible, verifying values in design through prototyping, user testing and other empirical analyses.
