UX Sessions: Qualitative Research

Qualitative research is a crucial step in the design process. It allows us as designers to go out and discover without any bias what are the drivers, pain points and situations that take place in the user’s life, and determine how is that we should (or even if we should) design a specific product or service. After this course, you will be able to improve how you approach a new idea during a discovery phase and put in practice methods such as interviews, personas, and concept testing while being objective and aware of your own preconceptions. REQUIREMENTS

  • English speaking
  • Basics about UX
  • Experience working in UX related fields
  • Knowledge and experience in User-Centered Design

 

 About UX Sessions

Improve your skills in user experience design. The UX Sessions are workshops around specific UX topics. You can join only one, many, or all of them!

The workshops will happen two times a month, starting on December 2nd, 2017.  Each workshop consists of evening events on weekdays or Saturday mornings. We designed the classes to be small and independent, so you can join only the ones you want to become the expert in.
