I recently spoke with JohnnyHolland’s Jill Christ and Andrew Harris about research for the design process. The result is an easy-listening podcast, ready for download onto your iPod! Radio Johnny also has a huge number of other, fantastic podcasts.

Jill provides some highlights:

Sam Ladner share her insights about Design Research, and what the Interaction Design community can learn from social research. Sam discusses the difference between quantitative and qualitative research, and why one might choose one method over another. Sam also discusses how to uncover your stakeholders true research questions, and how to offer deep insights, even when there doesn’t seem to be enough time. She covers various approaches to research, shares insights that sociologists have studied for hundreds of years, and how designers can use them when designing for social spaces.
