ONE-day experiential workshop on “IMMERSIVE SESSION TESTING”

Testing quickly in short sessions is not ad-hoc, it requires deep immersive thinking. Here we perform reconnaissance to analyze/understand, search for issues, extract information and then process rapidly to come up with interesting observations, anomalies, issues and questions.

In this style of validation, the focus is on testing in short sessions in a scientific manner making them sharp and effective.

Establishing the session’s objective clearly and quickly as to what entities to evaluate and evaluate-for, diving deeply to seek information to strategise and design, taking notes/documenting test-scenarios/cases tersely, evaluating rapidly, jotting down observations/anomalies, keeping track of progress, and finally publishing the dashboard of quality is what this experiential workshop is all about.

The participants will perform a few immersive sessions to understand the practice of doing. Aids to facilitate the session will be provided.


This experiential workshop consists of FOUR sessions that are 90 minutes each.

KNOW & SEE (Session #1)

Understand IST. Watch how an IST session is done

(An already done IST session output is used to illustrate)

DO (Sessions #2 & #3) Do a ‘Reconnaissance session’, a 90 minute session (#2) to question & understand the system

Do a ‘Search session’, this is about design and test of a system in a 90 minute immersive session (#3) Aids to perform IST (“Workspaces”) will be provided to enable the DO session

ASSIMILATE (Session #4) Q&A, clarifications to enable assimilation of IST
