On October 12, 2012, Lisa Chow and Sandra Sajonas lead attendees in a DIY-style workshop, which introduced how to use people-centered design methods at your library. Participants explored how to use user experience methods to make small changes for a big impact. Filled with examples, case studies, and activities, participants worked together in groups and used the tools for approaching how to complete a DIY usability study of their own.
Here’s a look at what participants worked on:
1. Usability Professionals’ Association (UPA) – http://www.upassoc.org
