Why learn about UX design?

With great design comes great responsibility. User experience (UX) design isn’t just about creating pretty or functioning websites – it’s about creative solutioning and trying to make people’s lives and experiences better.

As designers, we need to remember that we aren’t designing products for ourselves, but for other people. Being a UX designer allows you to work with and problem solve for a variety of different people, and empathy plays a huge part in this.

During this collaborative learning experience, we’ll explore the difference between UI and UX, and how they work together. We’ll walk through the design cycle; including discovery, user testing, and user personas. Learners will also have a chance to experience different UX methods through hands-on exercises, including building physical and digital prototypes.

Who is this for?
Our Ladies Learning Code workshops offer female-identified and male-identified, trans, and non-binary adults hands-on, project-based learning experiences that are designed to give beginners the skills and confidence they need to become digital creators.

Prerequisites:
None! This workshop is designed for beginners.

Note: If you do not have a laptop to use during the duration of the workshop, we have a very limited quantity that we can loan out. The option to borrow a laptop will be included in your order form when registering. If only a “no” option is available, there are no more laptops available.
