UX Foundations Workshop

Back in September, my friend Karen Tang and I taught a UX Foundations workshop as part of the PGH-Tech meet-up group. In the workshop, students were grouped into teams and asked to create think about a design problem in one of four domains: Health, Education, Kids/Family, or Travel. Then they utilized a number of techniques and strategies to ultimately wireframe a solution. In particular, we covered…

  • storyboarding
  • personas
  • journey maps
  • sketching
  • design critiques
  • dot voting
  • grids
  • colors
  • typography
  • ….and more.

By working on a real design challenge, students were able to experience many different aspects of product design.
