LADIES LEARNING CODE: INTRODUCTION TO USER EXPERIENCE (UX) DESIGN


The theme of this year's workshop is all about building web and app experiences for others as part of Canada Learning Code’s Equity #clcCode4Change initiative. 

Why is designing for equity important? So that products and solutions are created to be as diverse as the population they serve and improve accessibility. Whether crash-test dummies for vehicle safety features, voice assistants that can recognize accented language, or to eliminate racial discrimination in artificial intelligence tools, a more equitable digital world will create a better world for us all. User experience (UX) design isn’t just about creating pretty or functioning websites - it’s about creative solutioning and trying to make people’s lives and experiences better. Learners will walk through the design cycle, including discovery, user testing, and user personas. Learners will also have a chance to experience different UX methods through hands-on exercises, including building physical and digital prototypes. Participants will learn how to make digital user experiences more accessible and equitable for consumers from all walks of life.

This national initiative for women, women-identified, trans and non-binary people introduces coding and user experience design in a welcoming, friendly, social and collaborative environment.
