Course Description 

Do you find that you're building a site around your organization's departments instead of your end users? We’ll run you through a process for working with administrators and staff to create a website that focuses on your end users while keeping the goals of your organization in mind. You'll learn how to approach your projects with the fundamentals of user experience & design through this all day course. We’ll introduce you to a few tools and techniques we use with our clients at Aten for finding the right tone and content balance, ultimately creating a successful web experience.

Learning Objectives

In this hands-on workshop, we’ll walk through the first part of Aten’s strategy and design process to give you ideas for expanding your strategy and design toolkit. You’ll receive access to the templates we use at Aten. And you’ll learn how to run stakeholder workshops where each exercise builds on the previous one and helps you create a successful web experience.
