Research in Practices: Recent Findings that Usability Professionals should know about

Findings UX professionals should know about

Feel like you are falling behind in your UX research reading? Research in Practice will help.

This annually presented / updated seminar identifies and reviews key and recent findings that extend the core UX body of knowledge and inform user centered design and methods.

Critically, we then bridge the gap between research and practice with hands-on exercises that concretely demonstrate how to apply the findings to real design problems.

When you leave the session you will make more informed research and design decisions. And you will be able to speak about them more authoritatively.
