Researcher Skills Workshop

location cxpartners | 6 PM-9 PM Wednesday 19 June 2019 (BST)

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.
