Website Research Registration Page

The City of Unley is keen to collaborate with the community to better understand how people locate information on our website.

Website Research

We are conducting three key website activities, the first will be on site at the Council, the others you can do remotely in your own time - volunteers can sign up to any or all the activities below via the links provided. 
  
Please note, that there are only a limited number of places available in the ‘in person’ workshop (Activity 1) as we will be selecting a specific group of participants to act as representatives of key stakeholder groups for Council. 
 
Process of recruitment  
  1. Everyone will be sent a questionnaire that helps us get to know you a little better.  
  2. The in-person session - our team will contact community members directly.
  3. On-line sessions - participants will receive links to the activities in the upcoming weeks.

FAQs

  • Can I be anonymous? 
    An external company which specialises in website UX design has been engaged to conduct this work to ensure impartiality. The in person activity is in a group setting and is therefore not private. For the online activities, you can choose not to provide your name when signing up, however we will need your email address and will ask some high-level questions during registration to learn more about you. 
  • Will I be paid for my time?
    We are currently not offering remunerations for participation in these activities. Those who take part in on-site research will be provided with refreshments on the day. 
  • When will I find out the results of my contribution?
    These research activities will contribute to wider research around website use and customer needs. We will keep your details on file and let you know when the new website is launched and provide opportunities for on-going feedback in the future.
