Need to catch up on the emerging research? Tired of slogging through papers that are so dense they make your head spin? Or that don’t apply to anything you care about? Or both?
This tutorial is for you. Research in Practice offers a fast-paced, way to update your knowledge of emerging research about UX practices, methods and user behaviors.
Before the tutorial, we sift through hundreds of peer-reviewed papers and distill them down to the handful of studies that matter to your practice. (We update the material every year.) Then we summarize the studies and translate the findings into concrete design-oriented takeaways that you can apply in your work. Hands-on exercises and (typically quite lively!) discussions explore the implications and demonstrate how the research can be applied in practice.
