Transcript

  • 1.  
  • 2. Today’s agenda
    • What’s Matchable and where did it come from?
    • Surely Design is about Things?
    • Why would a Brokerage service be needed?
    • What do they think of the show so far?
    • What next?
  • 3. What is Matchable?
    • A service that helps connect design students to health and well being organisations
      • C. 80-90 (undergrad+grad) students a year across Scotland’s design schools
        • Other discs too
  • 4. Where did the idea come from?
    • Like most ideas…conversations!
    • Our resource predicament: we all need to lend a hand
  • 5. Louise
    • “ So what is it you do pet?”
    • “ I’m a design student.”
    • “ Oh really? So what sort of things is it you design?... Chairs?”
    • “ Erm…kind of. I design systems, services and experiences as well as products too.”

  • 8. It’s happening already…
    • design professionals are working in health & well-being
        • (see separate slides on this topic)
    • design students are working in health & well-being
      • E.g. 14 students in 1 year in 1 institution
        • (see separate slides on this topic)
  • 9. …So why do more?
    • Swathes of H&WB orgs don’t know about existing students work
    • Swathes of H&WB orgs don’t know how to access this resource
    • HEI connections within H&WB orgs are limited
    • Little opportunity for either to learn from experience thus far

    • Students
    • Health & Well-being orgs
    • HEIs
    • See http:// www.Matchable.org.uk
  • 14. Students
    • Huge percentage want to work in health
    • See it as valuable experience and a career in health
    • Both during term time and in summer
    • Some just want short interventions (it takes a long time to set up a focus group, or get user testing)
    • Need additional support not just in design
  • 15. Health & Well-being orgs
    • Accountability & Responsibility?
    • We do Programmes not projects…
    • Design with a capital D and not a small d
    • Paying for skills?
  • 16. Educators
    • “ It’s so inspiring to see the students naturally leaning towards socially focused projects. They are doing it by themselves. It’s brilliant.” - Hazel White
    • Matchable is not here to do the tutor’s job
    • Some already have good links with health orgs
    • Very positive about creating health links
    • See opportunity past design (multi-disciplinary)
  • 17. Issues
    • Accountability?
    • Payment?
      • Crowding out professional suppliers?
    • Timing (HEI and H&WB cycles)
    • Being organised enough to benefit?
    • Broker-governance?
  • 18. Opportunities
    • H&WBs: more innovation (at a time when we really need it)
