Talks, panels & workshops

I regularly give talks, panels and workshops, remotely and in person, in London and elsewhere in the world. Here are the latest ones:

UXR Vocabulary, 29 Sept. 2022

The remote Panel UXR Vocabulary was hosted by Research Bookmark.

Over 400 people joined this panel. Sabrina Duda and the other panelists discussed the most used and most mis-used terms in UX research, how to keep up to date with UXR Vocabulary, and when it is most important to align on the meaning of UX terms. Understanding how to communicate is critical in UX research. This allows to share knowledge properly with stakeholders, colleagues and the UX research community.

Feedback

"I can't begin to quantify the responses from people as to how insightful the session was. Your years of research, your depth of understanding of UXR, and your ability to present the subject in such an interesting way produced one of the most memorable evenings we've ever had." The organiser

The Research Challenge Workshop Series

The Research Challenge Workshop

In the picture you see us - Jen Romano, Rebecca Destello, and I - in our first in-person 'Research Challenge' workshop at UXPA San Diego on 20 June 2022:

Jen Romano, Rebecca Destello and I created and moderated 'The Research Challenge', a workshop for junior researchers to work on real-life research challenges and practice research planning skills. In an interactive remote session on MIRO participants worked in groups and individually on research tasks - with timeboxing like in work-life or job interviews. The first of our workshop series was on 9 Sept. 2020, and the following ones were on 7 Oct. 2020, on 18 Nov. 2020, and on 16 Dec. 2020.

The big three did it again! The latest 'Research Challenge' workshop was on 17 August 2022.
