DIY Usability & User Experience: Workshop Highlights

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:
