Zürich UX Research Guild: Research Skills Workshop
The ResearchOps community is arriving to Switzerland!
Are you a dedicated user researcher or dealing with research on regular basis within your organization? Then this event is meant for you! The Researcher Skills Workshop has been shaped by the ResearchOps community, as a frame to reflect on your skills, on your career path and on your future opportunities.
:: Who should attend ::
The workshop is open to anyone with hands-on experience doing research. Participants without professional research experience will be unable to complete some of the activities and have a hard time getting into the materials, which start by reflecting on specific working experiences, and creating productive discussion about the work. If you are interested in joining future workshops and events though, just drop us a line! this is only the first event and we are planning to establish a local Research community. The workshop will be held in English.
:: Be our guests ::
David and I (Marie-Aude) are UX-Researchers at Crowdhouse, in Zürich. We are delighted to welcome you in our headquarters in Zürich for the workshop and the aperitif which will take place afterward. We will provide with the workshop material (craft paper and worksheets, pens and sharpies), snacks and beverages. Feel free though, if you feel more comfortable, to bring you own pencils. No specific hardware is required.
