Continuing Education Course
Part–Time UX Design Courses in Toronto
In our UX Design course, you will learn to put the human experience at the core of everything you build, and use design thinking to creatively solve real issues.
These courses are designed for those working as designers or developers, as well as alumni of our part-time web development courses. While your learnings in this course remain rooted in user experience and user interaction principles, we will also dive deep into learning how people think. Your in-class exercises and projects will hold the human at the core of all concepts being learned.
SOLVE REAL PROBLEMS
At the end of this course you’ll have two original, portfolio-worthy projects that solve real-world problem using design thinking. Your first portfolio project will tackle the myriad of problems that arise with transit in a major city. In your second project given full autonomy to propose a solution to one of today's "wicked" problems - a problem so big that it seems unsolveable. With both projects, you’ll go beyond wireframing and digital design tooling and tackle the heart of each issue, the human experience.

If you’re looking for someone who will only teach you how to make pretty things, this might not be the best course for you. But if you want to learn how to use qualitative and quantitative research to solve problems with beautiful design, then you’ve hit the jackpot with this class.
