About the Usability and User Experience Community
|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
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."
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.
