UX Research Day 1
Die Mythen des Usability-Tests (in German)
August 22, 2023, 10:00am CEST, online
The first day of our UX Research Days will start with an exciting panel discussion addressing the myths surrounding usability testing. Experts from leading companies in the industry will join the discussion and share their insights and experiences.
The discussion will address several recurring questions and issues related to usability testing, such as:
– Are “think aloud” tests still relevant, or do participants’ explanations during the test influence the results?
– Is it sufficient to test with five people, or is a larger sample size of 100 participants preferable?
– Should a medical app only be tested by medical professionals, or is a lay test just as effective?
– Can anyone conduct usability interviews, or are special skills required?
– Are the results unusable if the testing process deviates from the given guidelines?
– Are personas indispensable for usability tests, or are they ultimately superfluous?

UX Research Day 2
„Digitales Wohlbefinden: Potenziale für die UX-Forschung“ (in German)
August 23, 2023, 02:00pm CEST, online
In this insightful webinar, Lisa Wiese, Director Human Experience at eye square, will shed light on the concept of “Digital Wellbeing” and its potential impact on UX research. The webinar will look at the diverse impact of digital technologies on different aspects of our lives.
Digital technologies and services are ubiquitous and enrich almost every aspect of our daily lives. While they have the potential to positively enrich our lives, they can also have a negative impact on social relationships, voting outcomes and young people’s mental health.
The concept of digital wellbeing aims to design technologies so that they not only provide positive user experiences in the short term, but also add value to individuals and society in the long term.
The webinar will highlight the following key aspects:
– Distinguishing between digital wellbeing and UX
– Measuring digital wellbeing and its integration into UX research.
– The potential of digital wellbeing for companies and their products

Interview with Lisa Wiese
In a two-part interview series at marktforschung.de, Lisa Wiese looks at the concept of digital wellbeing. Digital wellbeing expands the realm of user experience (UX) and considers the holistic experience and wellbeing when developing digital products and applications. Companies should definitely address the topic of digital wellbeing, as this helps to better adapt their digital products to the needs of users and to strengthen customer satisfaction, customer loyalty and competitiveness in the long term.
She also sees the concept of digital wellbeing as an answer to the negative effects of using digital services. A positive user experience (UX) is now considered essential for the market success of a product or brand.
