About This Workshop

Are you interested in UX Design, but have no prior experience or an idea of where to start? You’ve come to the right place!

In this two-hour livestream, we’ll explore the decision-making process that separates a good user experience from a great one, and learn some tools that you can implement in your own UX process today. All in real time, taught by an industry professional.

Come learn the basics and gain the skills you need to begin your UX Design journey!

What will the livestream learning experience be like?

  • Ask questions and build your online network by interacting with fellow classmates and an expert instructor —all in real time via live chatbox and Q&A.
  • Complete optional classwork designed to give you a hands-on taste of the industry.
  • Learn new skills in the comfort of your own home, or on the go! All participants will be automatically muted with no video.

Takeaways

  • Learn what the world of UX design encompasses and why it matters.
