I was really pleased to have the opportunity to attend SDinGOV once again, and have pulled together a few thoughts and resources from the sessions that stood out the most for me.
This week we hosted the Public Sector Design Community meetup where attendees had the opportunity to share their side hustles.
Public sector design community colleagues have been meeting to talk about service design; what it is and why it matters. The podcast they’ve produced is relevant to our service improvement work at the University and well worth a listen.
The leading user experience conference UX Scotland is once again being held in Edinburgh this June. This year I’m contributing a session.
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.
I set myself the challenge of writing a summary of each session I attended at UX Scotland, as a way of forming my own thoughts on each topic, and to make sure to follow up on everything I wanted to.
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…
Last week I attended the first Service Design Network meet up to take place in Scotland. Organised by some of the team at Nile, around 80 like minded people came together to hear talks from three great speakers.
