Event description
Understand what really drives digital impact. We take you through key consumer psychology principles for engaging and retaining customers.

About this Event

In today’s attention-centred economy, it is more important than ever to engage your users, ensuring your audience can easily access your digital products and services. But with so many elements of a user’s experience to measure, it can be hard to know where to start, or what matters for delivering impact and customer value.

In this course you’ll uncover the psychological factors that lead people to buy, share and enjoy digital experiences. You’ll come away knowing which aspects of an experience you should be optimising and measuring, for impact.

Throughout the course you’ll learn how to:

• Frame your challenge

• Know your audience

• Analyse your product, service or experience

• Assess your strengths and weaknesses using, design, psychology and UX principles

• Create impactful design and comms features through your new knowledge of user psychology

• Generate research questions to address the gaps in knowledge.

Over this 2-day remote and interactive course we individually tailor the sessions to your needs, so you can put your new knowledge straight to work. Our live sessions run from 10.30am - 1.30pm on day one and from 1.30pm - 5pm on day two.

If your company develops, produces, markets or offers any digital products or services (websites, apps, games, video, audio, digital signage, connected retail), and it’s a part of your job to support their success, this two-day blended remote and interactive course is ideal for you.

While gut feeling, design innovation and years of experience might inform you to make the right choices – this course will ensure you understand how to engage your users, through an understanding of user psychology and how this relates to user experience practice.

Drawing on our 25 years of research and fresh real-world examples, we will work with you to build your understanding of what is psychologically impactful for users. You’ll come away with a robust and actionable toolkit of techniques and methods, which you can adapt to your company’s needs, and which you can use to work with your designers to optimise existing or create compelling new digital user experiences.

Through the course our expert team will guide you through key components psychological theory and principles in user experience, such as:

• The impact of digital technologies on the human attention system, on habit building and processing emotion

• The benefits and costs of technology design to the user from a psychology perspective

• Key UX principles for designing optimal experiences, and how psychology underpins these design principles

• UX frameworks for uncovering problems, successes and for prioritising which elements of an experience to measure

• The implications of psychology and UX for designing and compelling digital propositions

• Examples of good and bad practice in UX

We focus the course on the UX research challenges attendees bring along, with the goal of enabling each of you to leave with tools and confidence to support your goals.

So, we want to keep things informal and personally relevant to you by offering as much of the course as interactive sessions as we can.

Previous attendees have said…

I’m a Product Trial Manager, meaning I test software to see whether it’s working and whether there are any usability issues. I chose the course because of the excellent reputation Goldsmiths has and the wealth of experience i2 media has in applied research. I was looking to build a broad skill set, gain a scientific understanding of why people use the products that they do and understand the psychology of consumer choices. The course content was really interesting, and it was brought to life through case studies and activities. I loved the fact that there was a small group of us and that everyone was from different industries. I found that really beneficial as it helped me see how widely applicable this learning is, to multiple industries and multiple roles. All in all, I came away with a lot more than I anticipated and this course has made me want to try other short courses at Goldsmiths.” - Nima, Product Trial Manager at YouView, course attendee January 2020

A course that goes above and beyond to provide a relevant and detailed understanding of User Experience. Jonny, Jane and teams’ practical knowledge of UX are evident throughout - with a wealth of experience, successful studies and live projects to match it. Over two days they provide a solid foundation of knowledge that can be applied to your own work.”- Ollie, Digital Designer, Allianz, Spring 2018

It was an excellent two days, and the course was very well structured, informative, thought-provoking, and very open to discussion and debate with everyone. I really enjoyed it.” - Inês, Summer 2017
