Although the course covered everything from assessing the competition to various methods of user testing, my favorite workshop was around creating personas. Students were put in groups and then based on the criteria of a made up company they were asked to create a persona. Anyone from the CEO to a freelancer.
The students consisted of tech professionals, novices, and all ages.
Following my lesson, and asking me questions- the results were amazing!
