What are Local Groups?

IDF Local Groups will expand your local career network - whether you are interested in learning new skills, looking for new job opportunities, new clients for your company, or a great new dedicated employee.

An IDF Local Group is a group of people who are just as passionate about design as you are. Each Local Group holds physical meetings and the agenda is to get inspired, discuss, have fun, learn and improve your career. Meetings take place in a relaxed and fun atmosphere at a local cafe, an office building, or an auditorium depending on the agenda for the meeting. For each Local Group there is also an online Local Group so you can stay in touch and help update each other on local events.

Meet-up description

Hola Uxers,

Os proponemos nuestro próximo encuentro día 15 de Diciembre en el Canòdrom. En esta ocasión conoceremos al equipo LAB y PX de Metadecidim que están en los inicios de la creación de la plataforma para la participación democrática Decidim. Decidim PX (Experiencia de Participante): diseño participativo de plataformas digitales democráticas.

Este tipo de plataforma plantea cuestiones del ámbito de la teoría y de la metodología UX para intentar resolver un reto clave. ¿Qué modelo de diseño ha de seguirse para mejorar la experiencia de las participantes en Decidim?

A continuación del LAB haremos un workshop del equipo PX de Metadecidim en el que podremos participar para intentar resolver algunos retos de la plataforma y terminaremos la velada con networking.

17:30 - 18:00 Presentación de IDF y de Decidim
18:00 - 19:00 Lab Metadecidim*
19:00 - 20:00 Workshop por el Equipo de PX (Participant Experience)

*Para este Lab de 60min necesitamos 3 Uxers que quieran participar activamente como ponentes. Si te interesa participar envíanos un e-mail a idf.barcelona@gmail.com contestando brevemente a las preguntas siguientes y nos pondremos en contacto contigo. Si conoces a alguien que quisiera participar, corred la voz.

- ¿Qué modelos o paradigmas de diseño en torno a la UX existen?
- ¿Qué factores han de tenerse en cuenta (arquitectura de la información, del interfaz, de la navegación, etc.)? ¿cuáles son las reglas y recomendaciones básicas?
- ¿Qué modelo es el más apropiado y cómo ha de modificarse para responder a la idiosincrasia de un proyecto como decidim?
- ¿Qué implicaciones prácticas (retos, posibilidades, etc.) tiene la transición del tradicional modelo de UX al concepto de PX?
- ¿Qué rol juega la experiencia del participante en la constitución de y participación en las nuevas formas de democracia en red, así como su éxito o fracaso?
- ¿Cuál es la conexión entre experiencia y participación?
- ¿Cuáles son las coordenadas teóricas y prácticas centrales desde las que debemos pensarlas? ¿y las metodologías para aplicarlas?

Hello Uxers,

We are organizing our next meeting for December 15th at the Canòdrom. This time we will meet LAB and PX team of Metadecidim, which are at the beginning of the development of the democratic participation platform Decidim. Decidim PX (Participant Experience). Participatory design for democratic digital platforms.

This type of platform poses UX theory and methodology questions in trying to solve a key challenge: What type of design model must be followed to improve the experience of Decidim participants?

Following the LAB we will all join a workshop by the Metadecidim PX team trying to solve some of the platforms challenges. We will end the evening with some networking.

17:30 - 18:00 Presentation of IDF and Decidim
18:00 - 19:00 Lab Metadecidim*
19:00 - 20:00 Workshop by Team PX (Participant Experience)
20:00 - 20:30 Networking

*For this 60-minute Lab we need 3 UX designers who would like to participate as speakers. If you are interested please send us an email to idf.barcelona@gmail.com answering briefly to the following questions and we’ll contact you. If you know someone who should be on this panel, please pass it forward. (The panel will be in Spanish)

- What UX models or design paradigms already exist?

- What factors need to be taken into account (information architectures, interface design, navigation) What basic recommendations would you give?

- What is the most appropriate model and how could it be adapted to answer to the idiosyncrasy of a project such as Decidim?

- What practical implications (challenges, possibilities..) exist transitioning from a traditional UX model to the PX concept

- What role does participatory experience play in the constitution and participation in new forms of online democracy, as well as its possible success or failure?

- What connection is there between experience and participation? What are the theoretical and practical central guides we should use to think about this. Which methodologies should we be applying?

The panel and activities will be in Spanish, although if you are able understand but not speak very well we encourage you to join us.
