A World Usability Day Celebration

Have you ever considered a career in usability testing or user experience design and research? If so, please join STC as we celebrate World Usability Day on Thursday, Nov. 9!

This year’s theme, Inclusion through User Experience, will be explored by a small panel of speakers who will describe how they got into usability and UX, what you should know on the job, and how your degree can lend itself to this exciting career. The panel is followed by a Q&A session and a small celebration.

We will meet in English and Philosophy room 201 or live at http://bit.ly/2hgDWE1 on Thursday, Nov. 9 from 5-6pm CST.

Speakers include:

  • Jack Labriola, a PhD candidate in technical communication and rhetoric, a former UX Research Intern at UserTesting in Mountain View, California.
  • Michael Brooks, a PhD student in technical communication and rhetoric, and former business manager of the Lab for Usability, Communication, Interaction, and Accessibility (LUCIA) at Auburn University.
  • BATC Assistant Director will discuss possible academic tracks at TTU for students interested in pursuing this career.
  • TTU’s Usability Research Lab representative will discuss research conducted in the lab, the course associated with the lab, and address questions about internships with the lab.
