Scenario Co-Creation Cards

Method Overview

Cards built upon Value Sensitive Design methods with the purpose of identifying held values by prompting discussions that lead to implicit and explicit expression.

Examples of the co-creation cards available from the related academic paper.

Getting Started

Participants: Individual/Team

Materials: Picture cards


  1. Using picture cards, participants are asked to draw a card from each pile (green cards for stakeholders, blue cards for media, and red cards for role) while providing a brief description of what each card could mean.
  2. The researcher then further probes the participant to elaborate on their response as appropriate, developing their questioning based on the substantive content of the cards. Within an interview, 10-20 scenarios are explored, with discussions lasting around 3-10 minutes.
