Robertson, T., & Simonsen, J. (2012). Participatory Design. Routledge international handbook of participatory design.
Participatory design focuses on how collaborating in the design process of technologies used can be made effective by the participation of the people who are affected by the technology. The international handbook of participatory design is a guidebook which people can consult on participatory design. Put together by a team of experts, the handbook shows the importance of participatory design in research and practice. It has two sections, one focusing on the participatory design and the other on the application of participatory design. It covers such concepts as how to design a participatory approach, the methods for participatory design, tools and techniques, and participatory design for, with and by communities.
