    this article proposes co-reflection as a workshop to situate design practice in its context of application and presents a case study done at the eLearn Center of the Open University of Catalonia. Co-reflection is a re!ective practice. In the half-aday workshop developed, co-reflection was specifically tailored for group dynamics in situ. The workshop was the kick-off meeting of a design research project and involved both designers and stakeholders. The project focused on how to communicate and disseminate relevant information between members of the eLearn Center. the aim of the kick-off meeting was to define design opportunities by framing both collaboration and a design space. this double aim has been achieved by: a) exploring and framing a design space by re!ecting on short design activities in situ, and b) motivating stakeholders to collaborate in the design research project by making them re!ect on the expertise and interests they can share and gain. Participants’ evaluations have been used as feedback and treated as insightful considerations for further action research.
