Lunch & Learn: Bringing Library and Non-Library UX Practitioners to the Table

Wednesday, 8/9/2023

This webinar is being rescheduled for a yet-to-be-determined new date. Once finalized, this information will be updated.

This interactive lunch & learn event offers participants a chance to engage with UX practitioners both inside and outside of library contexts to discuss and question UX techniques and perspectives across a variety of positions and technical skill levels. Appropriate for individuals in a variety of roles and with differing UX experience levels, this breakout room discussion event will enable participants the opportunity to learn and share with others on several UX topics. Discussion notes (including breakout room leader-recommended resources) will be shared following the session.

Breakout room topics and leaders:

UX & Accessibility: Angie Brunk is an Academic Services Librarian ( Assistant Professor) at Kansas State University. With over 15 years of experience as a public services librarian at several institutions, she has been able to see how people of many backgrounds actually interact with complex technology
