The life sciences industry is facing transformational changes. The convergence of technology, digitalization, virtual simulations, and 3D printing – just to name a few – are creating new opportunities to improve personalization, quality and safety of treatments, and the optimization of patient experiences.
In this perspective, the roundtable will focus on how design thinking and design practice can help students and practitioners to embrace a human-centered perspective to health (patient) care while actively applying their creative mindset to problem solving.
Presenters: Dr. Basilio G. Monteiro - PostCovid Society: Metadata and Surveillance SocietyDr. Elisabeth Fondren - Metadata is Political: Journalism, Information Governance and Propaganda|Dr. Mark Juszczak - Post-Covid Society: Even When the Pandemic Ends, Metadata is here to Stay….Prof. Edrex Fontanilla - Company Ethos and Policy Vacuums in Post-Covid Society: the Pitfalls of MetaDataDr. Nancy DiTunnariello - Covid-19 pandemic: metadata and challenges to longitudinal studies and sampling techniquesDr. Tiffany Mohr - Covid-19 and Conspiracy Theories

Although barely mentioned in the news media, Metadata is a major new force in the pandemic. And it is here to stay well after the pandemic ends. Metadata may help to generate new methods for preventing outbreaks and for tracking how therapies work, and people behave.
At the same time, metadata also presents a threat to the fundamental right to privacy, a right most vulnerable for those in society who are also the most vulnerable – the poor, the marginalized, the economically and socially oppressed.

Design for Everybody - How Inclusive Design Supports Both Fair Access and Breakthrough Innovation
Thursday, December 3, 2020
2:00pm - 3:00pm
Industrial Design has traditionally prioritized functional or marketing objectives while neglecting users’ well-being and other cognitive, social, emotional, and ethical concerns.
However, best design and innovation often originate from unexpected places and applications. This talk shows that designing for marginal users and communities can lead to breakthrough innovations while contributing to sustainable consumption and to a more inclusive society.
Presenter: Edrex Fontanilla, Collins College of Professional Studies, Mass Communication
Virtual Reality as Empathy Machine: Immersive Media as an Instrument for Social Change
Date: Monday, October 26, 2020
Fontanilla's creative practice employs immersive media as an interventional tool, creating low-impact site-specific installations about urban ecology, and educational instruments for social integration of disabilities. In this session, Fontanilla explores the emergent properties of virtual reality that make the expressive form particularly effective in promoting cognitive empathy.
