In this workshop, we will work with our community partners to learn best practices and simple hacks for Usability and Accessibility. We'll learn this by doing, as we test and evaluate an app prototype using the RITE (Rapid, Iterative Testing and Evaluation) model.

First, we’ll learn about Accessibility hands-on, using the Cambridge Simulation Gloves and Glasses from the Inclusive Design Toolkit. Then, we’ll develop and execute a usability testing protocol, and put it into action by conducting a round of Usability Tests with real users.

Workshop is limited to 5 participants. Participants will receive the UX Night School Field Notebook and our Accessibility and Usability Guides to bring back to their own work.

Snacks and beverages will be provided.

Designing Services Workshop

  • XOXO Outpost

REGISTER

In this workshop, we’ll partner with a community organization providing services to explore ways to design services, and create a Service Design Map and a lo-fi prototype.

First, we’ll explore data from the previous workshop to create a Service Design map, spanning solutions, tools and systems, technology infrastructure, processes, and metrics. Then, we’ll build on it to create a lo-fi (that would be paper) prototype to test in a future workshop.

Workshop is limited to 5 participants. Participants will receive the UX Night School Field Notebook and our Service Design Mapping and Lo-Fi Prototyping Guides to bring back to their own work.

Snacks and beverages will be provided.

UNDERSTANDING USER JOURNEYS

  • XOXO OUTPOST

REGISTER

In this workshop, we’ll work with a community partner to interview users and develop journey maps as a way to share and develop user insights.

We’ll start with consulting a community partner, then identify our objectives and questions. Next, we’ll develop interview questions and protocol. Then, we'll dive right in to interview a user and learn about their workflows and processes. Finally, we’ll debrief after the interview and create a User Journey map based on our data and findings.

Participants will receive the UX Night School Field Notebook and our User Interview and User Journey Map guides to bring back to their own work.

Snacks and beverages will be provided.
