How to plan, run and analyse usability studies
Date: 31st January 2020 (the day before FOSDEM)
Time: 12:00 to 17:00
Address: Hackerspace Brussels - Rue du la petit isle 1, 1070 Anderlecht, Brussels, Belgium
A free, hands-on workshop for FOSS contributors where you will learn how to plan, run and analyse usability studies with software users.
The workshop is suitable for complete newbies: no experience on design research necessary. All you need is a pen and a free / open source project you want to use as a case study.
We will cover:
1. Planning usability studies: research questions, participant recruitment, protocol, technical set-up and research script.
2. Running usability studies: how to moderate and document a usability testing session.
3. Analysis: how to make sense of a usability study using the affinity diagram technique.
You will create your own research plan for a project of your choice. We will run a usability testing session in the room that you will need to document as it happens. Finally, we will use that documentation to analyse the outcome of the usability testing session by building an affinity diagram.
This workshop is organised by Open Source Design with support from Hackerspace Brussels.
