About This Workshop


This workshop will be hosted online (Livestream) due to safety considerations, please check out the "Preparation" section on the bottom of this page. Registered participants will be notified in advance of this program with information on how to log in to the workshop.

As technology changes and more media outlets compete for customers’ time, providing an enjoyable experience is critical to both attracting and keeping users. This bootcamp aims to demystify UX by giving a practical and simple introduction to what UX is while also explaining some of its core concepts of usability. This is a field that affects all areas of business — prepare to dip your toes into an ocean of new concepts and ideas that will enlighten your perspective on the human-computer interaction experience.

Designed for anyone working or aiming to work in digital, this class will be particularly useful for:

  • People wanting to know more about UX before undertaking formal training,
  • Visual designers, content managers and developers wanting to understand where their discipline crosses over with UX, and how they can work well with UX designers,
  • Marketing, account, product and project managers wanting to understand when UX should come in, what it does and its value,
  • Entrepreneurs and business managers looking to understand UX before recruiting UX designers.

Here's what past participants are saying about this bootcamp:

"For an introduction to UX, this was a very good workshop. My knowledge in UX is now stronger and I feel ready to improve my skills in a more specific field."
