The exact content of the program depends on your experience:

Program for the user testing workshop

By the end of this workshop, you’ll know the ins and outs of the whole in-person user testing process:

  • Moderated user testing: the basics
    What kinds of usability testing are there? When to use which method? What about eye-tracking? And when are heatmaps interesting?
  • Recruitment of test users
    How important is it to recruit the right users? How can you reach them? How to avoid no-shows?
  • Test scenario
    How to determine the scope of the test? What kind of questions should and shouldn’t you ask? Does the order of tasks matter?
  • Moderating skills
    This is where most user tests fail. We’ll show you how to avoid the common pitfalls of moderating a usability test: how to ask questions in a non-leading way, how to make use of non-verbal communication, how to deal with difficult test users …
  • Documentation & analysis of the results
    How do you end a day of user testing with actionable results? How to keep the observer room involved? How to convince everyone to do something with the results?

It's a co-creation workshop

Just so you know: day 2 is focused on practicing.

We want everyone to go home with first-hand experience preparing a user test, writing a test scenario and moderating a short test.

So you feel confident to go out and do your own in-person user testing.
