About the Tutorial

Want to catch up on the emerging research? Tired of reading research papers that don't seem to apply? Research in Practice offers an expedient and cost-effective way update your knowledge of recent research and emerging trends.

This annually updated tutorial offers a fast-paced, abd informative survey of key and emerging research that will shape your practice. We review papers from the range of disciplines that inform user experience design, including (but not limited to!)
o Emerging and evolving research methods
o Consumer decision making
o The psychology of engagement
o Information visualization
o Cross-cultural issues in design
o Effective leadership and organizational change

We interpret key papers, highlight methodological concerns, describe concrete take-aways and demonstrate how the research can be applied in your work tomorrow. We bridge the gap between research and practice with hands-on exercises that apply the findings to real design problems.

When you leave the session you will feel more informed and more confident about applying emerging research to shape and justify your design decisions.
