Description

UX Boot Camp

Exercise your design chops by solving a real-world problem for a client doing social good.

In 2014, 650,000+ children spent time in U.S. foster care. The common wisdom is that the foster care system isn’t working and is ripe for redesign. Foster America is a cutting-edge national nonprofit dedicated to improving the lives of America’s most vulnerable children by building a pipeline of leaders and innovators (called “Fellows”) who will help transform the child welfare system. Through Cooper’s UX Boot Camp, advanced design and tech practitioners will help Foster America design an outstanding service experience geared to attracting, engaging and empowering Foster America Fellows to disrupt and improve the system.

You will walk away from this four-day intensive workshop knowing how to:

  • Design a human-centered and holistic service experience for an innovative and growing organization, with an eye towards recruiting, onboarding, training and retaining top talent from across industries.

  • Use design thinking to deepen engagement and loyalty with rising stars in the tech, design, and corporate sectors.

  • Apply Cooper’s Goal-Directed Design methods to enhance existing programs and service offerings and develop new ones.


Your Client:

Foster America's mission is to improve the lives of America’s most vulnerable children by building a pipeline of leaders and innovators who will help transform the child welfare system.

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

“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
