Event Details

After the success of the first UX Design Training course, we're bringing it back!

 100% of attendees said it was worthwhile attending the course.

"Great balance between presentations and activity work. Kept people engaged!"
Senior Platform Manager

"It's a very practical course, no waffle."
Louise, Report Developer

"It will help me when liaising with designers, front-end developers and stakeholders. The gained knowledge will also enable me to better judge the chosen approach, or question more what we are doing is the right thing."
Platform Manager

"Well presented and worthwhile. Thank you very much."
Sara, Web Developer

 

This is a 2-day course in the centre of Oxford to get you started with User Experience Design. You'll spend two days with an experienced User Experience professional learning best practices of UX Design in a hands-on workshop and friendly environment.

During the course, we will go through a series of practical exercises where you will learn the best practices of user-centered design for digital experiences, such as websites and mobile apps. You will be designing a mini-project so you get a taste of each activity (it will be fun!).

 

Level:

Beginner/Intermediate.

Perfect if you’re considering expanding your skills and learn UX Design techniques.

No previous technical or design experience required.

 

Who is it for?

This is for anyone who would like to learn UX Design. You may be a graphic designer, marketer, developer, project manager, business analyst, student...

Previous job roles of attendees included: Graphic Designer, Platform Manager, Business Analyst, Web Developer,  and Digital Communications.

  • UX Design techniques

    • A toolkit of UX techniques, tools, terminologies and their benefits.

    • Profiling users: personas, scenarios and user needs

    • Mapping out user journeys

  • Rapid prototyping

    • Tools and techniques for rapid prototyping (without having to write a line of code!)

    • Wireframes

Required materials:

If you can, please bring your laptop on the second day (you won't need it on the first day). It will give you the choice of creating your rapid prototype using a digital tool. However, if you can’t bring your laptop, you can still create useful prototypes on paper.

 

Schedule

Time: 9am to 5pm

Coffee breaks: There will be short coffee/tea breaks: one in the morning and one in the afternoon. Coffee, tea and biscuits will be provided. 

Lunch: There will be a 1-hour break for lunch. Please note that lunch will not be provided. We will book a table at the Jam Factory for attendees who would like to have lunch together. We know that some people like to do their own thing at lunchtime, so lunch together is totally optional.

Drinks: At the end of Thursday (after 5pm), we will book a table at the Jam Factory Café for attendees who would like to stay for a drink. It will be a nice time to get to know each other in a relaxing environment. This is entirely optional.
