This interactive session focuses on how to foster conscious engagement in online spaces (digital mindfulness) as a fundamental component of current conversations in design ethics.The session explores how UX design shapes our use of digital tools and our thoughts, emotions, and reality—for better and for worse.

In a guided interactive format, participants will explore how digital design shapes user behavior in both on- and offline spaces. Following this discussion, facilitators will provide participants with an exclusive look at a mobile app prototype that helps users engage more mindfully with technology. Participants will play with the prototype in small groups, and facilitators will lead a design challenge for expanding the app with an eye toward viable scalability and feature enhancements.

This is a Learning Forum session.
