Method-Resonance Heuristics Ethics Tool


“Method Heuristics'' is an evaluation-based activity where practitioners will be provided with designed method heuristics tags to evaluate existing ethics-focused methods designed for design work.

According to the A.E.I.O.yoU model (part of the bigger toolkit), this activity seeks to evaluate ethics-focused supports at an artefact (A) level.


  • Familiarize yourself with the Method Heuristics provided to evaluate a method.

  • Select/ Identify an ethics focused method that you want to evaluate or currently using in your team. Here is a list of ethics focused methods.

  • Evaluate the method using this worksheet by:

    • Placing Intention Cards and matching them to the Design Phase (cards) the method can be used in.

    • Bookmarking on the method with Ecology Heuristic Tags and Artefact Heuristic Tags.

  • Reflect, tweak, and edit to identify how the method can be tweaked to be used in your ecological setup for ethical decision making.
