About This Class

This event is part of General Assembly’s Campus Day, a free, in-person full day event filled with free tech classes, career workshops, and networking activities. Join us to find out all about what General Assembly has to offer in your pursuit of a new career. Check out the rest of the series here.

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 Q&A with the instructor.

We’ll see you in class.

Takeaways

  • An understanding of the UX Design Process
  • Simple user research techniques to get the most out of your interviews
