Augmented Reality in Mobile Applications and its Potential for User Engagement by Vika Nightingale

In my first conference talk, which happened in January 2016 at the Connected Communities Heritage Network. 

The research I presented was on the approaches to the user experience design using the study of the current Augmented Reality landscape as the focal point. This presentation was also about user-centred thinking, its challenges and further Research & Development opportunities within not only Augmented Reality but also the area of user experience itself. 

Connected Communities is a "cross-Research Council programme led by AHRC, designed to help us understand the changing nature of communities in their historical and cultural contexts and the role of communities in sustaining and enhancing our quality of life."

"Double Diamond" design process by Vika Nightingale

In October Near Now (design and technology commissioning, producing and development programme) with Snook (service design agency) put together a two-day workshop for a cohort of the MBA students from Loughborough University. 

The aim of the workshop was to implement various techniques from design practice to address issues in social care, civil engineering and finance. A prominent approach on the day was the Double Diamond process.
