My core purpose for going to London end of June was to teach two courses at General Assembly London, a tech-incubator and knowledge space. They’re located down on Back Hill Rd in the Clerkenwell section of London. I taught Branding & Visual Literacy the day I arrived and the next day I taught a three-hour long UX Basics Workshop.
The first task on my agenda after checking in with my job back in NYC was prepping for the user experience workshop I was going to be teaching at General Assembly. The point of the course was to give attendees an overview of different user experience strategies and concepts as well as some hands-on exercises. During the last portion of the class, I had them mindmap out different existing web sites to identify possible user personas, problems addressing those users, features to be added to the front page and menus, and to remove features if unnecessary.
Check out the pictures below to see their work and progress. Interested in getting your designy hands dirty? Register for my next UX workshop held Saturday, 9/15 from 12pm – 4pm.
