User research myth #1: "We can set up a diary study and leave it running" Anything involving participants needs management throughout the process, not just at the start and the end. Participants need warming up, keeping on track and feeling like their contribution is valued.

Slightly scary picture of my MASSIVE FACE. Thanks @UXBristol for a great day! Lovely to see so many familiar folks and some great content too.

Quoted @UXBristol

.@emmaboulton: A really simple way to get started with research is to use guidelines and templates. Standardising research guides and interview templates is a really good way to make sure that everyone is using the same, robust techniques #uxbristol

It helps to put a label on what you do so you can get buy in, ask for support, and ask for more resources ⬅️ @emmaboulton 👌 #ResearchOps

Enjoying @UXBristol so far. Great morning of workshops from @cjforms and @MarkSkinner_ Now enjoying Kate Smith talking about Participatory Techniques. Great point she makes that by only using verbal research methods we exclude those who aren’t verbally dexterous.

I wasn’t expecting such a positive reaction to this! If I had, I would have added that as I said in the piece, I am merely a mouthpiece for the @TeamReOps community. This represents work many people have had a hand in.

The Eight Pillars of User Research by @emmaboulton https://link.medium.com/EBeuSFH6dY  If you've ever read your Enneagram or Myers-Briggs profile and felt you're reading an autobiography, this is what this article feels like to a UX researcher #researchops #reops #uxresearch @TeamReOps

My work here is done. Thanks Carl. 🙌🏻

I hate buying swimwear for myself. Always have. So I was made up to find a swimsuit that not only fits AND looks great but is also MADE FROM RECYCLED PLASTIC FROM THE OCEAN!! Thankyou @FinisterreUK One very happy customer:
