User research for content professionals (online, 2 days)
User research is an essential skill for content designers and strategists. It’s one of the tools that make today’s content professionals more than just writers. But starting out with research can be daunting. What type of research is best for your content? How do you do it? And what’s the best way to actually use all your research insights?
After doing this course, you’ll be skilled in a range of user research techniques, and you’ll know how to use research to deliver better content for your users. You’ll also know how to bring a much-needed content focus to research that others are doing or have already done.
Content success through stakeholder engagement (online, 1 day)
Have you ever wondered how to convince someone in your organisation of the value of user-focused content? Got frustrated when a subject matter expert insists on impenetrable jargon? Despaired when your content doesn’t get approved because the approver thinks you haven’t been precise enough about that specific aspect of the law?
Weave’s content practitioners have distilled years of experience to develop this unique course. It will give you skills and techniques to engage with stakeholders throughout your organisation as you plan and develop content that meets user needs and business goals – vital for anyone working with content.
Content design (online, 2 days)
This course is for people who have some experience writing for the web but would like a complete grounding in producing user-centred, evidence-based content.
Over an intense but enjoyable 2 days, you’ll benefit from experienced trainers with real-world knowledge. You’ll work together on practical exercises with tangible results, leaving with a real piece of content that you can use.
Weave are the official Australian trainers for this Content Design London course developed by Sarah Winters, the inventor of content design.
Highly recommend for all content peeps. Even if you know some of it, you don’t know it like this.
