Beyond the lab: Exploring user needs at home

Interactions with technology are becoming ever more situated within context, calling for research that understands people in their natural environments. In this talk, I’ll discuss how to conduct user research in participants’ own homes, including the benefits of doing contextual research and things to consider when planning a study. The talk will help attendees from a range of backgrounds learn how they can understand users’ interactions with technology in their homes, and how these contextual insights can inform design.
