Peter Jones is associate professor at OCAD University, and teaches in the MDes Strategic Foresight and Innovation program, and guides research in the Strategic Innovation Lab (sLab). The sLab builds upon the graduate teaching and research, with a 5 year track record in developing advanced practices in foresight and systemic design for socially-responsive innovation. Peter's research agenda includes:
healthcare system/service design systemic design theory, method, and disciplinary foundations strongly sustainable business models and the flourishing society innovations in learning media and scholarly publishing dialogic design and collaborative foresight process.
Peter started Dialogic Design International in 2007 with Aleco Christakis, Tom Flanagan, and Ken Bausch as a US practice center for SDD. Peter also leads the Redesign Network, an innovation research / information service design firm with a network of associates in the US and Toronto. Redesign specializes in professional practice and high-tech sectors, designing for clinical informatics, medical and higher education, and other complex work systems.
Peter has been an active board member of the Institute for 21st Century Agoras, and works with a worldwide practice network to advance the dialogic design practice and theory, for inclusive, multi-stakeholder participation in solution creation for wicked problems in global and civil society.
