Year 1 of Teaching at General Assembly

I recently wrapped a teaching a trio of short, single-session classes on user experience design at the General Assembly here in Hong Kong.

The three classes I taught were:

  1. A Hands-On Introduction to Building Wireframes – slides here
  2. Lean UX: Evaluating and Iterating Design
  3. UX Essentials: Crafting the Right Personas – slides here

I really enjoy teaching, so I had a good time. All three classes I taught were for beginners and required no prior knowledge. As a result and through General Assembly’s wide network, I was able to meet students from all sorts of backgrounds – ex-finance folks, software testers and even one business owner who decided to use my class as a forum to advertise their web design shop’s work (luckily they kept it brief).
