The User Experience Designer (UXD) plays a critical role in today’s Experience Economy. With digital, human-centered products and services at the forefront of this economy, this workshop aims at understanding humans on a fundamental level as it applies to design, how to perform user research and testing as part of an iterative design cycle along with various design processes and who is involved.
