User Research Methods for Information Architecture
Wednesday 6th October, 9am–5pm
In this full day workshop, Patrick Kennedy will explore basic user research methods, as well as introduce more advanced methods that are not commonly used by IA practitioners. He will discuss practical tips and advice on how to conduct research in real world environments, sharing the benefits of his years of experience in this area.
The primary aim of the workshop is to give participants a solid ‘heads up’ on the subject of user research and point them in the right direction so they can integrate research into their own work or just better collaborate with researchers.

Not to Prime is a Crime!
Thursday 7th October, 9am–5pm
Regrettably, this workshop is now cancelled.
Last year, Jodie raised the question of, “how do we get more from our participants in user-testing situations?”.
This is a big question for UX practitioners, as generally we don‘t get to engage with users as much as we’d like; and often ‘user-testing’ is in fact the most common way many UX professionals interact with their users.
This workshop follows on from last years conference session, and will take the group through the psych theory behind the priming approach; some local and international case-studies; and most importantly of all, everyone will get their hands dirty trying the method out.
At the end of the session, you will not only have created a collage of your own, but also have had a go putting together the homework outline that directs your users to complete this task.
Come along and learn how you can get this process up and running now!
