A Researcher's Mindset Talk on Learners

A Researcher’s Mindset

By Janelle Ward, Lead User Researcher @ Just Eat Takeaway.com

What it’s about: Learning the research methods is not enough to succeed. Researchers must also acquire the necessary mindset in order to thrive in their practice. This talk is all about the ideal mindset for a researcher. What does it look like, and how do you achieve it?

What you’ll take away: Janelle has seen both sides of research; academic and UX. She’ll explain how we can learn from those settings to understand the ideal researchers’ mindset. She’ll also offer practical examples of how to activate this mindset in stakeholder meetings.

A note from the creator:

“A researcher’s mindset questions everything, lives comfortably in the grey areas, and champions empathy. Give more consideration to the importance of mindset than becoming a methods expert.”
