World Usability Day 2016
The Department of Immigration and Border Protection (DIBP) UX Section will be hosting World Usability Day at their Belconnen office on November 2nd 2016 and invite you to attend.
2016 is the year of Sustainable Green UX and focusses on making life easy. Both sustainability and UX are about creating the best experience for people.
Sustainable products take existing products and services and refine and redesign them to be more effective & efficient. Thus, Green UX draws from these principles to generate products and services that both improve user experience and promote environmentally friendly behaviours.
There will be a range of speakers across the government and private sector including:
- Mark Reeves, DIBP
- David Heacock, Cybertrack Consulting
- Snezna Schmidt and Colette Raison, DIBP
- Heath Keighran, Department of Finance
- Brigitta Norton and Ian Waslett, Adelphi Digital
- Representative from the Digital Transformation Office (DTO)
There will also be a series of workshops demonstrating our upgraded UX Lab and recently acquired eye tracking equipment.
A full agenda will be published closer to the date.
