A whole year of UCD Bristol events has been and gone! Thank you for suporting up and encouraging us keep going! UCD Bristol 13 will be in our usual location at Edo's office. If you haven't been there before, they are in the Quorum building next to the Old Market roundabout by Temple Way (closest parking is Cabot Circus). This month, we have something a bit different. We'll be starting with three lightning talks from well know faces on the UX scene here. Then, we'll finish with a panel discussion about the evolution of UX in Bristol over the last 5-10 years. This will cover the people, the industry, attitudes and trends and we want to hear your opinions and thoughts! And as usual, we've got you covered with plenty of pizza, beer and soft drinks for you! UCD Bristol is sponsored by Natural Interaction, People For Research and Edo. ======================================================================= The lightning talks: Ben Cubbon - Sharpening your research craft Living up to our principles as a user research practice means being the sort of team that takes the time out to practice our craft. – Ben will talk about how the research practice at OVO sharpens its research craft by sharing a case study of the day they spent playing with ethnographic observation. Dr Tim Dixon – Measuring Value in UX Tim will present an iteration of the digital impact framework, refined to be focussed on the user experience and research community. This lightning talk will also introduce a new collaboration with UX for Change and provide a taster of how the framework will be used in 2019. Amy McGuiness - The danger of design bubbles Why building diversity into teams is vital for our future. ======================================================================= The panel: Adam Babajee-Pycroft, from Natural Interaction, will join our three guests to make up a panel of four to discuss how UX as a practice has evolved changed in Bristol over the last 5-10 years.
