As part of Learning at Work Week, we’re doing a series of posts on filming. This first part is about the basics.
We recently wrote about the Parliamentary Archives and the work they're doing to be more accessible to the public. In this post, we're talking about how they're helping to preserve Parliament on social media.
Jen joined Parliament through the Speakers Parliamentary Placement Scheme. She tells us what it's like and how she went from a job in a law firm to having a job in Parliament.
The Parliamentary Archives stores more than four million records and are the oldest Parliamentary archive in the world. They recently started working on a transformation project and are planning on building a new website, which is where we come in.
At the end of March I said goodbye to my colleagues in PDS as I'd just finished my six month secondment as a User Researcher. I've talked to a lot of people about what I've learnt and now it's time for a blog post.
It's been three months since we've had a Blog Editor at PDS. Last month we did a review of how the first three months have gone so here's what we found.
Capability for us is making sure we have the right skills to deliver a digital service for Parliament. I lead on capability in the Digital Development directorate so here's an update on what we've done so far and what we want to do in the future.
User needs are mentioned a lot in PDS. In this post, I explain my understanding of user needs, what starting with user needs means, and how PDS does this.
With so much work going on at PDS, it can be easy to take our live services for granted. The work to build our new website is challenging our whole way of thinking, especially our approach to content management. In the meantime though, we've been doing plenty of work on parliament.uk.
The Digital Development team in PDS has rapidly expanded, and there are a lot of new faces. Feedback from our last away day showed that staff wanted to get to know colleagues. With this purpose in mind we decided to get everyone together to do some user research.
