Research output: Contribution to conferencePaper

Abstract

Modern planning practices recruit stakeholders to add specialized expertise to the planning process, but this expertise often remains inert, leading to superficial and circular discussions. By encouraging stakeholders co-construct an external shared representation, more nuanced debates could emerge. This work reports on formative interviews that will inform the design of software that will allow stakeholders to articulate and share their knowledge, and to inspect the underlying assumptions of others and the outcomes of the system.
