About This Workshop Series

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.

This workshop is for UX beginners who want to learn how to design a product by actually doing it or anyone who wants to start or continue building their UX portfolio.
