Knowledge Integration Seminar
UX Research - the role, the goals, and having an impact
I work as a user experience researcher, bridging the gap between business and customer needs to help organizations make better decisions about their products and experiences. This field is experiencing a boom in Canada, with more UX Research job titles popping up than ever before. In today's digital product landscape, customer experience is the new differentiator. In this seminar, I'll focus on the role of UX Research in product development and service design contexts, and why I believe KI students are well-positioned for a career in the field. I'll also share my experience as a KI alumni, and provide some advice for navigating the career landscape post-grad.
