(Everyone, apologies for any duplicate postings you may receive. Here's the official announcement from Rosenfeld Media for my new book-in-progress. I'm so excited! /SP)
Interviewing users is fundamental to user experience work but, as Steve Portigal cautions, we tend to take it for granted. Because it's based on talking and listening, skills we think we have, we often wing it. Sadly, we miss out on many of the wonderful opportunities our interviews should reveal.
I was wondering if anyone had any advice or experience when it comes to intranet user research? Currently I am conducting a number of user interviews with colleagues across my company, but I am starting to question the size of my sample, and also how best to analyse the research.
Our growing technology consulting company seeks to expand our user experience practice. We're looking for a mid-to-senior level user experience designer with a focus on user-centered design. An ideal candidate also has a strong interest in and experience with user research.
This is an excellent opportunity for a designer who would like to have an significant influence on the development, process and philosophy of a practice. Requirements:
* 3 - 5 years experience as an information architect, interaction designer, or experience designer (or similar role)
I recently used CARD method with soem modifications to help end-users of an application project their future workflow for a system that was being re-designed and articluate the requirements about the system within the context of the scenarios that were generated .
Recently, I came across this course at NTU, Singapore: 'Master of Arts In Interactive Design' (which borrows faculty from Domus for the workshop phase of the course). But I have no idea of the market for IxD in Singapore and am wondering whether I should take this up.
Come hang with us in San Francisco or attend remotely on May 6th from 9am - 4:30pm PST. We're holding our third Escape The Lab workshop on remote UX research methods and tools. You get hands-on training with the latest moderated and un-moderated remote UX research tools. We're the crazy authors of the new Rosenfeld book, Remote Research.
