Designing Your Digital Project From a User's Perspective
Part of the series: Digital Tools and Approaches to Connect and Transform Your Research
How will others benefit from your research data and outcomes? How will users interact with your digital project? Why are you doing what you are doing? This hands-on and interactive workshop will take you through a collaborative process exploring the conception, design and structure of a digital project with an emphasis on designing for users and engineering sustainability into the project by design.
This workshop is designed to help you clearly delineate your own digital project goals and objectives, account for the various stakeholders (some of whom you may be unaware), and document and communicate your identified goals and objectives effectively to participants outside of your own area of research. Basically, it comes down to finding the means to get the right information, presented in the right manner, to the key people involved in your potential or real digital project.
At the end of this workshop participants will be capable of defining their project in simple and more universally appreciated terms, be cognisant of the varied demands that might be placed on the digital project by users, and be capable of creating and delivering professional and effective Project Case Documentation.
No advance preparation for this workshop is necessary.
Duration: 10:00 - 12:00 and 13:00-15:00 (with an hour for lunch)
