Improv.e UX: Improve Your Soft Skills with Improv
self

As UX practitioners, we need to cultivate a number of soft skills on a daily basis. Amongst others: empathy and deep listening, the ability to work effectively within a group, lateral thinking and storytelling.

In improv theatre, actors need to manage the unexpected, working together to create a show without a script. The techniques they use are very valuable for tackling some of the skills we need to improve.

During the workshop, you will learn by doing, improving while experimenting through games and practical exercises.

How UX and Data Storytelling Can Shape Policy
society

How can we take UX and Data Storytelling out of the tech context and use them to change the way government behaves?

Showcasing the truth is the highest goal of data storytelling. Because the design of a chart can affect the interpretation of data in a major way, one must wield visual tools with care and deliberation. Using quantitative facts to evoke an emotional response is best achieved with the combination of UX and data storytelling.

A journey in digital storytelling: Data visualization, interaction, serious games
products and services

Technology is changing the way that stories are being presented and told. At the same time, we’re drowning in data and the need for clear, concise storytelling is greater than ever. All these data and technologies present opportunities to explore and reinvent how stories are being presented. Data visualization, interaction, serious games; all are aspects of how we can use UX + content/data to shape compelling narratives.

Join Chi-Loong in this talk as he brings you through data visualization examples and design.
