Session Details

Remote Usability Testing

This session will be presented by Lee Duddell from whatusersdo.com

Brainstorming of ideas for upcoming NUX sessions

This session will be presented by Dina Salah from the University of York.

A modified form of Open Space, to reach interesting session ideas. Since the meeting is supposed to be self-organising, the facilitators put their energy not in running the meeting but creating a setting that gets everyone’s creative energy flowing.
