We are exploring the possibilities for situating IT design and development work within the context of use so as to support the co-realisation of technology and design in use . Our aim is to build a new understanding between IT professionals and users which is grounded upon what happens as the latter grapple with the problems of applying IT, appropriating its functionalities and affordances into their work practices and relations. In this paper, we outline the methodological foundations of co-realisation and describe our experiences so far in pursuing this approach within a healthcare setting.
