The User Research Center (URC) can provide consultations on what types and how many participants to recruit for your studies. We use a variety of recruitment approaches including:
- Targeted email recruiting; we provide templates and best practices. See examples in the UX wiki (HarvardKey only).
- Recruiting Harvard undergraduate and graduate students for usability testing, focus groups, or other user research activities, please view our URC Harvard student participant pool information.
- On the spot recruiting for informal testing; we provide a list of locations on-campus and information on how to reserve space. See examples in the UX wiki (HarvardKey only).
- Recruiting users of assistive technology for testing for accessibility, please view our accessibility participant pool information.
