Experiences in User Centred Design at the University of Edinburgh [A2]


Neil Allison has been working to raise the profile of user centred design principles and techniques over the past 6 years at the University of Edinburgh.

Neil will go through the things he has tried – what’s worked and what’s not been so successful – with who and on what.

Neil’s work has involved techies and non-techies, software development, websites, email comms and business processes.

At the end of this session participants should:

  • Understand what UCD is and its benefits.
  • Have an awareness of UCD techniques and where to turn to for free help and resources.
  • Know a few more people in HE who share a similar philosophy for potential follow up and knowledge sharing.
