About the Community

The Usability and User Experience SIG is a community of practice within STC, the Society for Technical Communication. With members from around the world, it provides a forum for promoting the practice of usability. Members range from those just starting to incorporate usability techniques into their work to those for whom usability is the primary focus of work.

The Usability and User Experience SIG focuses on the usability and assessment of technical communication, providing a forum in which STC members can share information and experience.

The community mission encompasses networking and communication. Here is one comment from a long-time member about how the SIG touched his life:

"The STC Usability SIG and its tremendously helpful and professional members have played a large role in providing me with usability skills and information. I have therefore been able to raise awareness of the importance of usability within the IT organization for which I am a tech writer, and has helped to increase my visibility as a person who can contribute value to a project from a usability perspective." --Dick Miller

Usability and User Experience SIG activities include planning and conducting presentations on usability and usability testing at the annual STC Summit, and compiling a bibliography of usability-related books and articles.
