Let's talk about being a UX researcher
What is this workshop about?
We're bringing together a group of researchers who are interested in reflecting on their craft, learning, and growing together. We will discuss specific challenges in doing the work, map out past project experience, and evaluate skills and career progression.
Join us on Wed 19 June to:
Gain a new frame and perspective for thinking about what it means to work as a researcher, and where a career can go
Reflect on the nature of our work, identify specific areas worthy of more time and attention
Connect with other researchers, to learn from each others’ lessons, perspectives, and approaches to the work
Who should come along?
We're aiming to gather around 15-20 UX researchers working at different types of organisations with a spread of experiences.
Come along if:
You're a UX researcher or someone that does research
You're interest in reflecting on your own practice and open to engaging with peers.
What will we be doing?
The workshop is hands on, with a mix of discussion, activities and personal worksheets.
The workshop will last around 2.5 hours:
1800-1830: Drinks and nibbles
1830 - 2030: Workshop (we will have comfort breaks)
2030-2100: Wrap up and goodbyes
Who's running this?
This is a global community project by ResearchOps, with workshops hosted by volunteer members for communities across the world. We'll collect some of the workshop output data and send it back to the project team. They'll clean up and open-source all of the researcher skills data, and publish a well-informed skills framework that researchers everywhere can use as a guide for growth and career progression.
