This week we hosted the Public Sector Design Community meetup where attendees had the opportunity to share their side hustles.
Last week we hosted the Public Sector Design Community at Argyle House. Attendees shared the research or design book, podcast or talk that’s influenced their career.
We’re hosting the next meetup of the Public Sector Design Community on Tuesday 9 October. This is a great (and free!) opportunity to meet and learn from colleagues working in user research and service design in places like the Scottish Government and Registers of Scotland, amongst others.
Last week I had the pleasure of presenting a short session on Lean UX at the Edinburgh User Experience meet up. If you’re local, I recommend joining in as it’s a great way to connect with a wide range of people working in the area.
We’ve just come back from UX Scotland, the annual conference hosted in Edinburgh that attracts user experience and service design professionals from around the world. This year there was a good turnout from the higher education sector, not least from our university. In this post a few of us who were there share our thoughts…
Our next monthly lunchtime meet up for people interested in user experience-related matters is Wednesday 21 February, with presenter Chris Nodder providing a beginner’s guide to Design Thinking.
Our next user focused meet up happens 25 January 2018, with guest speakers Clare Barnett and Hilary Brownlie from Registers of Scotland talking about the complimentary roles of business analysts and user experience professionals.
This week we welcomed Stephen Denning, Director of User Experience (UX) with Edinburgh consultants User Vision as our guest speaker at our lunchtime meet up, before a lively discussion of hot topics the group wanted to explore.
Last week I took part in my first ‘unconference’, the inaugural get together of OneTeamGov Scotland. People from across the public sector and third sector getting together to share the joys and challenges of building better services.
The University Website team had the honour to be invited to the inaugural Thunder Day event, organised by the Hubert Burda publishing company in Hamburg, Germany. The main theme of the day was how open collaboration can help when delivering digital content through the web.
