UGame ULearn Symposium on April 1; the Theme Is 'User Experience'
Word up to librarians and educators around the world: The announcement of the third UGame ULearn Symposium is out. It will be on 1 April at TU Delft in the Netherlands. If you are interested in the User Experience (UX), this is the show for you.
The lineup of main speakers this year is amazing: Michael Stephens, David Lee King, and Gary Vaynerchuk of "Crush It" fame. Wow!!
I (Kathy) had the privilege of speaking at UGame ULearn last year (when the theme was innovation / marketing), and it was a great event. Large enough to offer many good presentations and new colleagues to meet, yet small enough to be intimate, and all in one wonderful building. The hard-working organizers make sure the event is incredibly energetic, interesting, and surprising. The organizers are Liesbeth Mantel of Technicial University Delft, and Jaap van de Geer and Erik Boekesteijn of DOK, the Library Concept Center in Delft. (If those last two names seem familiar, yes, they are The Shanachies, who we've blogged about before. If you are Shanachie fans, that's one more reason to go to the symposium they have created!)
If you want to create better experiences for your library users -- which is at the core of true marketing -- then check out this 1-day conference that's been designed to improve the UX.
