UX Basics Workshop//Design 302
Tricia Okin, UX/UI Designer, Papercut
Friday, June 29th from 11:00 am - 2:00 pm.
This workshop will help you think through your current sites and projects from your users' perspectives by physically mapping out their concerns in space. First we'll review the various techniques to gather user research, then practice them in groups, organize the issues and plan execution. We'll cover the following methods:
- Mind mapping Paper prototyping- Narrowing down concepts to features and uses- Talking to your users (targeted and off the cuff prototyping)- Wireframing
This course is for people reviewing their current products who need address user issues or people who just need to integrate these techniques into their organizations. Students can expect to leave with some new paper prototyping skills, along with some apps and methodologies to translate to digital materials.
Lunch will be included
