About this workshop series

If you like learning-by-doing, you’re going to love this workshop!

We’ll start day one demystifying UX by giving a practical and simple introduction to what UX is while also explaining some of its core concepts of usability. You'll complete hands-on exercises, brainstorm and collaborate with other students. You will go home with a digital prototype of a mobile app.

For day two, we’ll shift from screen-first interaction to voice-first interactions and learn key concepts for voice design. We will practice creating and testing voice experiences using digital tools.
