My Rwandan User Experience

At UXCamp tomorrow, I will be telling stories from the user research trip I participated in during June 2010. The stories revolve around five themes and each has its own conclusion:

  1. New culture — Remember your audience
  2. No scheduling — Learn from everything you can
  3. No recruiting — Know your participant criteria
  4. No lab — Nta kibazo
  5. No script — Focus on qualitative data

These are ways for me to remember what stories I am telling tomorrow, and hopefully, if I have the pleasure of telling you my stories, the points above will be enough to remind you of whatever it is you came here to be remember.

And if you’d like to learn more about Rwanda or… “Africa time,” here are some resources:

If the five points didn’t jog your memory, or, even better, if you have other questions about my experience or the talk, please do leave a comment below, tweet at me, or send me a note.

Again, mura koze!
