The User Experience at Dundee group is proud to be presenting two sessions at UX Scotland 2019 that is being held in the amazing Dynamic Earth Museum in Edinburgh. For more information please see the cards below.
UX with hard-to-reach people in easy-to-reach places
Michael Crabb, Rachel Menzies.
When conducting UX testing, there's a tendency to carry out experiments with easy-to-reach people in easy-to-reach places, eg guerilla testing with visitors to a museum. However, it's sometimes necessary to look at the UX for products with population groups that are hard-to-reach, eg older adults or individuals with complex disabilities. Over the last 14 years we’ve been involved in working with hard-to-reach users and have created an easy-to-reach environment where this occurs. In this session, we’re going to discuss the successes and challenges of doing this and look at how you can do the same.

Solving problems and making friends using design sprints

- think about users with customer journey mapping
- think about content using content modeling and priority guides
- get creative with ‘Crazy 8’ sketching
- have your say using sticky dot voting and solution discussions
- learn about effective prototyping and user testing
