Course Overview

The professional 4-week UX/UI program will start with understanding UX requirements – what is needed for a product or service to be successful. Capturing UX requirements takes a lot of research, a thorough understanding of what sort of project you’re embarking on, and a handful of patience. Creating elegant solutions requires understanding how to conduct both Users Interviews –  to understand users’ actual “pain points” – and  Stakeholder Interviews – to understand the core business objectives and other strategic aspects. 

After that, UX designers need to gather in-depth information from the team and visualize the larger and smaller picture, with the support or strategic tools: Personas, Empathy Mapping, User Journey, Experience Map, Service Design Blueprint or Sprint Map. Developing empathy will help define the real problems before starting looking for potential solutions.

Finding solutions is a fun path! 

The workshops will help participants explore possibilities with many hands-on creative methods and generate user-friendly Interfaces based on the principles of good User Interface (UI) design, as well as learn how to run usability tests to see where they encounter problems and experience confusion.

Finally, the  Lean and  Agile Software development methodologies  will help participants make sure that the software being built  is not simply user-friendly, but a product that people will love. 

Along the way, participants’ will keep track of their UX/UI journey by building a professional portfolio – the entry ticket to the UX professional world! 

At the end of the course, participants will know:

The workshop will give you:

  • How to gain valuable insights with UX Research (both User Interview, Stakeholder Interview);
  • How to visualize research insights  with Personas and User Journey;
  • How to create prototypes with the collaborative vector graphics editor and prototyping tool Figma;
  • How to run Usability Testing sessions to improve user interaction;
  • How to be a good UX team player within an Agile team
