Learn and practice constructing a base UX process model to help you create strong user-connected experiences. Investigate and experience the entire UX design life cycle of various products and create various artifacts to be used to encourage product clarity and directional confidence. Through individual and group work, participate in a series of design challenges and activities to increase your critical thinking, analytical, and communication skills to support effective collaboration. Along the way, experiment and test various industry-standard UX tools and learn about emerging technologies.
