Teaching Product/UX Design

over 3 years ago from , Product Designer

Hi All,

I am in the process of considering a 'curriculum', so to speak, for graduates joining my companies graduate scheme in the summer months (Scott Logic for anyone interested). I have a rough plan in place as to how I would like to approach to the scheme, however I'm obviously keen to learn from other peoples experiences. So my question is...

Does anyone have any positive or negative experiences with either online or in-person digital design course which could assist me in structuring a digital design graduate scheme?

I am anticipating that the candidates will have some kind of design background, but not strictly digital design. So it is important that the basics are covered at least somewhat. Any approaches, comments or links would be appreciated. Thanks! :)

    I think the most difficult thing for me about online courses is the inability to present work in-person. Being a great designer is only half the battle, communication and presentation skills are super important and should be a large part of design education (imo).

    I taught UX Design at an online bootcamp service and the one thing I wish was on the curriculum was product discovery. Time to instruct how to understand the problem space (and contrast it to the solution space), how to conduct user interviews, how to understand and discover user goals, how they need to align with business goals, etc.
