Building a Continuous Learning Team: Escaping the Stagnation Sandpit

The UX field continues to evolve, and the tools and skills we need to perform our jobs with it. Seasoned professionals are often strapped for time and struggle to incorporate learning new skills into their schedules, while junior staff may have knowledge of the latest and greatest but lack overall experience and take time to onboard. Where can we find a sweet spot that allows teams to grow their skills and experiences together?

In this seminar, Kate Rutter shares her model for creating a culture of continuous learning in companies. Kate applies her experiences leading a successful UX adult learning program to her understanding of how people learn.

Encourage a growth mindset 

  • Banish the idea of claiming “expert” as an identity in the workplace
  • Encourage a culture where people can learn from each other
  • Create a two-way learning model, where people of differing levels of experience and skills can come together

Use the stages of learning as a framework to teach and learn

  • Explore beliefs and behaviors around the acquisition of new knowledge, from learning facts to establishing opinions, respectful debate, and collaboration

Learn simple practices to get started

  • From establishing a learn list to exploring knowledge maps and practicing OKRs, these actions reinforce what you already know, what you’d like to know, and how you can refine, grow and share your skills and knowledge with others

User experience professionals, designers, product managers, strategists, business owners, and anyone interested in creating a culture of continuous learning, will benefit from this seminar.

Pizza will be provided (Thanks to our host TEKsystems!) The webinar will start promptly at 6:00 PM, preceded by a half hour for socializing, networking, and food. 

We are able to offer this webinar at no cost. Come at 5:30 to meet your fellow Triangle UXPA peers and talk shop!
