About This Class

Companies in diverse industries like retail, healthcare, and finance - to name a few - are searching for diverse UX Design talent. That could be you.

Join us for a free, 2-hour class to get hands-on practice with the fundamentals of UX Design, and see if you’ve got what it takes to become a UX Designer yourself.

We’ll answer questions like, "What’s the difference between UX and UI?" and "What is it like to actually be a UX Designer?" Then, you’ll get hands-on experience with key UX Design skills like user research and sketching. Bonus: there will be time at the end for live Q&A with the instructor.

We’ll see you in class.

Takeaways

You’ll leave this class with:

  • An understanding of the UX Design Process
  • Simple user research techniques to get the most out of your interviews
  • Hands-on practice with sketching as a tool to generate and share ideas
  • Confidence to continue practicing your UX skills

Preparation

  • This is an entry level class, so no prior knowledge is necessary.
  • We’ll send a Zoom link to your email the day of class.
  • Have a pen and paper ready for the sketching exercise.
  • Note: your mic and camera will be off for the duration of the class.
  • A recording will be shared via email after filling out our in-class survey.
