Design Research – Discussion @ixd10

Posted in Event on March 1st, 2010 by Jeff Parks – View Comments

There has been increasing interest in our professional community around the research that informs our designs. Traditional user research may shed light on superficial complaints or wish-list items, but we want to talk more about how we can uncover opportunities for ground-breaking experiences. We will be having a round table discussion and hope that you will bring your distinct perspective and experiences on how research inspires design.

Joining us this morning will be Steve Baty, Daniel Szuc, Indi Young, Eric Reiss, and Chris Avore.

We look forward to sharing ideas from the topic of design research and sharing some of the experiences from the third annual Interaction Design conference in Savannah Georgia.

How We Got Here…and Where We’re Going!

Jeff and Chris have a discussion about how The UX Workshop got started and where they’re hoping to take this initiative over the long term.

We also discuss the many volunteers and organizations around the world who have generously shared their time and insights with us. Thank you to everyone for your time and we look forward to feedback from the global community about how to evolve The UX Workshop and support people in every corner of the world to be able to share their experiences with others.
