Weeks 1 - 4

Intro to UX Design

We'll start with the essentials of user experience design, starting with human-centered design thinking. We'll develop user interface design principles as well, providing an integral understanding of the field as we apply that to your first design challenge. We'll explore the importance of user research to developing one's design process, as well as the different methods necessary.

Weeks 5-7

Best Practices of Usability and Prototyping

With the basics out of the way, we'll apply your new UI/UX skills to wireframing - starting with pen and paper, and working up to using computer prototyping software. The information you gather from users using your designs will inform the next iteration of your prototype, and increase the overall usability and accessibility of your designs.

Weeks 8 - 10

UX Iteration(Final Projects)

In the last weeks of the program, you'll finish your foundation in UX/UI by learning how to determine which aspects of your product need further testing with your users. The user research you've gathered will result in the refinement of your product, and you'll begin your final project, based on a real industry problem, with the knowledge you need to find a solution that puts the user first. Finally, you'll present your solution and learn the communication skills necessary to excel in UX fields.
