Designing Your 1:1 — The Most Important Meeting in Your UX Career
"The most important conversations about your career happen in your 1:1 (One on One meeting) between you and your manager.
Or at least they should. In an effective 1:1 you and your lead prioritize and untangle the topics that will have the most positive impact on how you work and how you show up. But many of us miss the fact that a 1:1 is more than just a meeting. It is one of the few vital tools that you and your manager can use to unblock your career progress and unlock your potential."
The Research Challenge: Planning UX Research
"In this 3-hour remote workshop, you will work in small instructor-led groups to determine the best research approaches to solve real industry problems. Our three UX Research experts will guide you through the process of choosing methods - remote and in-person - and designing studies. You will work in small groups and by yourself with the goal of getting different perspectives about UX Research projects. You will share your proposed projects and get feedback from peers and industry experts."
Using AI to Accelerate Journey Mapping 🆓
"UX and content designers often find themselves with incomplete research, limited budgets, and the pressing need to validate concepts quickly.
How can you effectively create personas and journey maps under these constraints? Enter the power of AI.
In this session, Noz Urbina will unveil a unique and proven methodology that leverages AI to craft personas and journey maps from incomplete data. Or if you're blessed with good research, it provides a way to create more and richer journey maps than you'd ever have time for otherwise."
A Day in the Life as a UX Researcher at Google 🆓
"Ever wondered what it's like to be a UX Researcher at one of the world's leading tech companies, Google?
In this webinar, we'll take you behind the scenes of Google's UX Research environment and its role in shaping user-centric products and services!
You'll be able to immerse yourself in a Google UX Researcher's daily activities and challenges and gain firsthand insights into their impact.
Our special guest speaker, Natalia Filvarova, will share her journey and experiences of transitioning from a career in lab and neuroscience to becoming a successful UX Researcher."
Set Your Research Up for Success with the UX Research Scoping Canvas 🆓
"What makes user research efforts fail?
One major factor is inadequate planning and lack of structure, leading to wasted time, resources, and effort.
That's where our UX Research Scoping Canvas comes into play. This tool empowers organizations to frame their research questions, plan their studies, and ensure they are on the path to research success.
In this webinar, learn how and when to use the canvas as we walk you through each step of the process. By the end, you'll have a solid foundation for conducting user research that's focused, effective, and actionable (at least, that’s what we hope!).?
How to Write a UX/UI/UX Research Case Study: Live Demo 🆓

Operations Thinking — Research Operations
"This course is about how to work together to define and scale user research processes and practices by applying Operations Thinking. Operations Thinking is an approach to building, scaling and embedding human centric principles in any organization as they develop and improve new products and services that are informed by user research. Learn how to use the unique Operations Thinking Canvases to define, embed and scale user research.
UX, Product Strategy, And Discovery With Debbie Levitt 🆓
"Debbie Levitt, CXO of Delta CX, has been a CX and UX strategist, researcher, designer, and trainer for decades. She'll be joining us in November to teach us more about the following topics:
What is UX? Is UX a skill anybody can have? Is it a role or job?
How do we know we hired a good UX Researcher or Designer? How do we know they are doing good work
What can a team do when they don't have any UX workers yet?
What should we understand about users and their needs before trying to solve their problems or innovate for them?
How can we know that our product or feature idea is a good choice?"
How to Balance Strong User Experience With Enhanced Security Within an Agile Framework? 🆓
"The need for increased security across application development has exploded in recent years, due to the increase in data breaches and associated costs. The challenge of combining UX design and Agile methodologies to develop more secure applications while balancing great user experiences has led to a backlog of vulnerabilities that often overwhelms development and security teams’ ability to fix them in a timely manner. Attendees will learn about design and security challenges, lessons learned, and best practices in designing more secure applications in an agile development environment. They will also learn how to best integrate security into agile and user experience early on using prototypes from past projects and a security marketplace, that was created for downloading security stories into your project management backlog."
