Contextual experience design: Designing great user experience with context (Basic)

by Chui Chui Tan

When we think of context, we often only think of location, or website versus mobile use. It's much more than that. Context could include the environment your users are in, their social circles, and even their tradition and custom. In this hands-on interactive workshop, you will explore ways to identify users' needs, behaviours, and expectations based on their context, and design a great experience accordingly.

Designing a customer journey from discovery to conversion (Intermediate)

A customer journey starts off-site. If you work with UX and customer experience, how should you think and design when planning interaction points all the way from the start of the customer journey until the end? Learn that in Stig's workshop.

workshop

Schemas, standards, and structure: Adaptive content as UX strategy (Intermediate)

by Rahel Anne Bailie

Content developers are facing an exponentially increasing challenge of creating enough content, in the right "shape" for the right audience. Right now, the shape is all about responsive design; the logical next step is to use adaptive content to shape the content experience in equal amounts. If we can agree that the end goal for audiences is to consume content – find content, get instructions, complete a transaction, be entertained, get informed – we can stretch the framework of UX to embrace content strategy. What goes into adaptive content is a combination of editorial and technical aspects of content. Using the right schema is on the technical side, alongside structurally-rich, semantically categorised content. Balancing that on the editorial side is structure that can handle multiple contexts. This workshop shows how these tensions are balanced with the underlying technologies and how it works together with UX to deliver a superior experience, especially when the need to deliver content – good, adaptive content – at scale is a consideration.

workshop

Interaction design beyond the pixels (Intermediate)

by Kevin Cannon

Interaction design is breaking away from the simple screen UIs in ever more exciting ways. We're being asked to put screens on all types of devices, everything has to be "smart" and our users are rarely just sitting at their desks while using our designs. Unfortunately, we don't yet have good tools for prototyping and designing these new experiences. In this workshop you'll learn how to design for these new products and contexts using hands-on, non-digital methods.

Knowing It All

Closing keynote by Rachel Andrew

Rachel has been a web developer for over 20 years. Things have changed almost beyond recognition since she first sat down at a computer to figure out how to build a website. However some things haven’t changed, and perhaps in those things can be found a way to navigate all of the new things, to assess new technology, and to make the right decisions for the projects we work on.
