User Experience (UX) Fundamentals Training

Register for our 1-day UX Fundamentals course and learn the true value of adopting a user-centred design approach within your team or organisation.

This 1-day course will introduce the participant to a broad range of UX-related topics, allowing individuals and teams a shared understanding of the techniques and processes used to drive product decisions from user insights.
Learn the fundamentals of UX in this interactive course which includes practical exercises showing the real-world application of the concepts we will explore.

Course Focus:

There are certain products (physical and digital) that we naturally enjoy using, and that make our daily tasks easier to achieve. These products are designed well and tend to consider the end user. So what goes into making this user experience excellent or positive? As producers of digital goods and services, what steps can we take to improve the user experience for our customers? These answers are found within a group of disciplines collectively referred to as User Experience (UX).

The range of topics include:

  • The principles of human-centred design
  • Interaction design and prototyping

  • Agile and UX – the merging of disciplines

“It’s not enough that we build products that function, that are understandable and usable, we also need to build products that bring joy and excitement, pleasure and fun, and yes, beauty to people’s lives.

Don Norman, pioneer and inventor of the term “user experience”
