About Cooper's UX Boot Camp: KIVA

March 11-14

At Cooper, we believe you learn best by putting new skills into practice solving the kinds of challenges designers face on a daily basis. That’s why we designed UX Boot Camp, a four-day crash-course in our user experience design methodology that gives you a real-world problem to solve along with the toolkit you’ll need to tackle it.

This UX Boot Camp will give you the chance to work with Kiva and connect people through the extension of microloans in order to eliminate poverty worldwide.


Cooper's UX Boot Camp is an opportunity for designers, developers, and project managers with some interaction design experience to take their skills to the next level. Over the course of four days, you’ll take a deep dive into Cooper’s Goal-Directed Design approach and apply what you learn to a real-world problem. You’ll take your ideas from inception to design with the mentorship of our best teachers and active feedback from a real non-profit client.

What’s in it for you?

  • Learn how to think through a problem from both a design and business perspective, rather than blindly applying methods by rote.
  • Learn new interaction techniques and approaches under the guidance of industry leaders, including Alan Cooper.
  • Energize your practice and make new connections by working on a real-world challenge with peers from around the world.
  • Beef up your portfolio with a smart, new design concept
  • Pick up leadership and collaboration skills that will help you better navigate your work environment.

Testimonials

"Working directly with a real client and conducting research interviews with real people was unlike any of the other training experiences I've had over the years. Learning with written case studies is good, but there’s no substitute for the real deal.  People are unpredictable.  Cooper is giving students a chance to learn, fail fast, and not lose their job in the process.” - Megan Ellinger, National Academy of Sciences

"I enjoyed the "experiential" aspect of the training - the hands on approach, mixed with presentation/teaching, was a combination that really helped me learn and retain the information. I was able to interact closely with others and work as part of a team. In most trainings, I just take notes and forget most of what I "learned"." - Andrew Kallemeyn, The Lampo Group

“The workshop training was grounded in delivering real value to stakeholders. The expectation of a concrete deliverable created a positive stress that motivated learning, engagement and team building amongst attendees.” – Shawn Crowley, Atomic Object

"Most conferences are set up to give you a shotgun of bite-size information as you move from session to session. UX Boot Camp was critical to me in that it was comprehensive and consistent with its teaching. I got the whole picture of UX skills alongside some in-the-trench experience." - Matthew Ensor, The Lampo Group
