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.
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
- The difference between UX and UI design
- 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”
“Thank very much for an awesome and I must say life changing experience after attending the UX Fundamentals course that was presented by Chris Dawson. He really knows his stuff and it was great to be able to connect and relate to the samples and scenarios that he presented. Taking us out of our comfort zone and yet doing it in such a way that we did not become defensive. Well done!”
