Jessie Webster & Kelly Moran Host "User Research Toolkit Workshop" @ Big Design

Looking for practice with in-depth user-experience research methods? You may have read about techniques in the past, but methods must be practiced to be understood. projekt202 has been employing these methodologies with great success since 2003. This workshop is your opportunity to try these tools in a structured environment without pressing deadlines or looming stakeholders. Our experienced research and design professionals will share industry tips and tricks that will help you put theory to practice.

The workshop will be hands-on and interactive; instructional elements will be reinforced with stories of impact to real projects. We will not only cover methods of gathering user data, but the importance of spending time internalizing and analyzing the data through activities such as affinity diagramming. Participants will gain exposure to these important practices in a low-pressure atmosphere and with the guidance of experienced professionals.

Kelly Moran Participates: AIGA's "Inclusive UX Panel"

A UX practice normally relies on understanding the problem, and empathy with the user. But, as we mature as a field, we’ve begun to ask, “Is empathy enough?” Can designers and researchers ever actually understand the user well enough to act as a proxy? How do we avoid designing bias into our systems? Does the user need representation on the design team? Would that even fix the problem, or just introduce new ones?

Join AIGA DFW as we discuss exactly those issues with a panel of designers and researchers from some of the metroplex’ most notable design teams.
