The Library is hosting a UX (User Experience) workshop for staff on Thursday 9th March, delivered by a leading expert, Andy Priestner. As part of this workshop we would like to work with students to be able to conduct some research. We’re looking to recruit 20-24 students.
Here’s a link to Andy’s website for more information on what he does: https://andypriestnertraining.com/
We would love to be able to engage with students to find out how they use the library’s resources and spaces with a view to making changes based on ethnographical research methods.
Join us for lunch in Deptford Town Hall and then for a one hour research session in Special Collections and Archives in the Library. You’ll also be given a £10 voucher for the Word bookshop as a thank you for their time.
Below is the outline for the whole day. Lunch is at 12:15. The two student research sessions are at 13:00 and 14:00.
09:00 Introductions; Aims; What are UX research methods?; What is ethnography?
10:30 UX techniques: Observation; Interview; Cognitive mapping; Usability testing; Touchstone tours; Card sorting.
13:00 Research with first group of students
14:00 Research with second group of students (as above, repeated)
15:15 Affinity mapping (of data gathered)
16:15 Idea generation (ideas for changes/new services)
16:50 Learning summary
If this sounds like something you’re interested in and if you want to help shape the future of the library, just email Marilyn Clarke (firstname.lastname@example.org). Please specify whether you’d like to work with us at 13:00 and 14:00 (there are more spaces available for 14:00).
