Portland June Workshop

working with community for a better app development


During June, Associate Professor Dr Christopher Lawrence and Dr Joel Fredericks traveled south, to Portland Victoria.

Together they ran a workshop with community partners to recruit participants. During this workshop, they discussed the future functionality of the #thismymob application.

These workshops are fundamental to the development of the app as it allows the researchers and developers to work with Indigenous communities across Australia and gather experiences and feedback about the app.

During the workshop, community members are encouraged to provide feedback about what they think would improve the app, and how their community would respond to it.

We look forward to doing more work with communities in the future of the app’s  development!
