My PhD research aims at understanding how museums develop digital collections through co-designing with stakeholders and participants from various institutional, disciplinary and cultural backgrounds. In particular, it looks at interactions between design participants who use different technologies, skills, and knowledge to construct engagement in the design process. The research findings will map out the dynamic relationship between museum professionals and stakeholders, and produce a conceptual model describing the impact of different design methods involved in the development of digital collections.
