Pete Yeomans & Oliver Quinlan
Workshop: The ‘Memeification’ of Research
Research has a curation problem: How might we curate our research into a “repository” to meet the decision-making needs of the businesses we support.
It’s too easy to imagine that a tool can be the silver bullet to solve the curation needs of a business. The best examples of well curated businesses often use research repositories, but a poorly curated business with the best research repository tools will simply have a tool they won’t use. I’ll talk about teaching and learning theory (pedagogy), knowledge transmission, what underpins the creation of memorable research artefacts, and revisit why User Research is a team sport.
Participants will need their laptop.
Oliver has been a teacher, academic, programme manager, user researcher and built and led several research teams, and is now working at Government Digital Service in the UK on involving users in the development of digital tools and services.
