UX Study Group: An Informal Learning Community

This is a past event.

Join the Sara Fine Institute for a UX Study Group!

This study group is an informal learning opportunuty. Its formation recognizes the work of Dr. Sara Fine, a psychologist who explored human interaction with information and technology and how the technological revolution affects individuals, organizations, and societies.

User experience (UX) research is the study of users’ needs, interests, and behaviors as they engage with technology, services, and infrastructure. Through this study group, we will:

  • Build an understanding of UX methods through readings and exercises
  • Find connections between our fields and UX methods
  • Locate ways that we can apply UX methods in our research, careers or future work
  • Understand how UX methods can be employed in ways that meaningfully prioritize equity, diversity, and inclusion 

In this study group, we will read work by UX researchers, as well as writings from fields that inform our understanding of the relationships between people and technology, such as psychology, media studies, library science, and sociology.

This is an informal learning community that will meet monthly. Students, staff, and faculty from all disciplines are welcome. Participants will be invited to propose readings or topics for engagement.

The spring 2023 dates are: January 25, February 22, and March 22 at 1-2pm on the 3rd floor of the Information Science Building (135 N Bellefield, Pittsburgh)

March 22 Meeting

We will discuss the Chapter 2 of Sasha Costanza-Chock's Design Justice: Community-led Practices to Build the Worlds We Need (MIT Press, 2020). This book is available for access as an eBook through the University Library System

Wednesday, March 22 at 1:00 p.m. to 2:00 p.m.
