Practicing Learners and Learning Practitioners

Session Details

A situated practice for training, transforming and leveling up UX researchers in Latin America. I was frustrated with my efforts training new UX researchers. Hours spent on presenting theories, methods, analyzing them, and timidly practicing knowledge did not necessarily translate into the successful implementation of that knowledge in the practice. In the last two years, moving away from traditional learning, we have been designing, implementing, and analyzing a professional training strategy for UX researchers in Mexico and in Latin America.

Our approach balances:

  1. Training professionals without previous experience on UX research, our Practicing Learners path.
  2. Training professionals with two or more years of experience in UX design/research, our Learning Practitioners path.
