Workshop: Going beyond “Know they user” - Developing and using personas and scenarios

Come spend the day with Dr. Ginny Redish, STC Fellow and internationally-recognized technical communicator and usability specialist. Ginny will lead a highly-interactive, hands-on workshop about personas and scenarios.

Personas and scenarios make your users and your users’ work come alive. They engage project teams in ways that traditional user profiles and task analysis don’t usually achieve. They make you - and the developers and other specialists you work with - think in new ways about your product’s users. And that can help you bring more value to your work.

About the workshop
With discussion and practical exercises, we’ll cover these topics:

Setting the context - usability and user-centered design

Gathering data for personas and scenarios

Turning data into personas

Turning users’ tasks into realistic scenarios

Using personas and scenarios as you design and write

Using personas and scenarios as you evaluate

Persuading others of the value of personas and scenarios

What to do when you can’t go out to collect data

Making personas and scenarios meaningful to developers and team members
