In the UX service, we rely on a number of tools to support our day-to-day work. In this new series of posts, I will be showcasing some of these tools for the benefit of the wider user-focused community at the University of Edinburgh. In this first installment, I will be talking about the Post-it Plus […]

Our latest lunchtime meet up for colleagues interested in improving services for users featured a presentation by UX Consultant Nicola Dobiecka. In this post I’ll highlight the key points and resources in her presentation about avoiding bias when interviewing people.

Over the summer we worked to improve the quality of web provision for prospective online learners. In this post, we recap the project process we followed and outcomes.

Our next lunchtime meetup for staff interested in user experience-related matters is Wednesday 3rd October, with Nicola Dobiecka providing an overview of user research facilitation.

We run a lot of workshops and facilitate a lot of design thinking activities. Sometimes we struggle for meeting rooms when running something at short notice but actually, I enjoy working in impromptu and open spaces. Here’s why…

We have recently completed a six month collaboration with University Human Resources Services (UHRS) which has delivered a fledgling digital strategy, developed new content management processes and skills within their team, and rationalised priority areas of their website.

Join us to learn about impromptu, informal “guerrilla” user research and discuss your work with colleagues at our first lunchtime meet-up for staff interested in improving services and experiences. We’ll be in Argyle House on Wednesday 18 October, 12:30 til 2.

We’re running another informal briefing and networking event centred around user experience-related services and activities happening at the moment. You can book a place for the session happening at Argyle House, Friday 13 October 14:30.
