Through the Looking Glass: Overcoming Self-Centered Design

We often unknowingly (or knowingly) build content and interfaces for ourselves, which may not fit the diverse and ever-changing needs of our users. The University of Minnesota Libraries web development team incorporates universal design principles, inclusivity, accessibility, and awesomeness. We’ll look at our own biases and address four main considerations, first examining physical limitations, then diving more deeply into the emerging areas of environmental, cognitive, and emotional. We will then take a look at how to onboard your own boss, usability methods to garner user perspectives, and how to look at the data.
