In this course, you'll get an introduction to user experience design, examining the origins of the field to the numerous professional contexts in which you may find work.
UX design starts with curiosity and being open to observing the world around you in new ways. The "beginner's mindset" is one way to achieve that.
We'll look at the work of Don Norman, the "father of UX design," along with his book, The Design of Everyday Things, to examine key concepts before exploring different approaches to the design process, from ensuring humans/users are at the center of our explorations to defining the problem.
Finally, on the road to becoming a well-informed and socially conscious designer, we'll look at accessibility, ethics, and inclusion as a way to unlock design opportunities.
