Course details

Overview

This course builds upon the theory and practical skills learned in UX Research Fundamentals (UXR101) and teaches advanced research skills for the UX researcher.

The course is ideal for anyone looking to build upon their existing small sample (qualitative) user research knowledge, specifically, to begin using large sample quantitative research methods to validate their initial user insights.

Each theoretical module is followed by a practical workshop or activity where you will put the learning into practice.

Jarryd Smith
“Mike’s thorough planning and structure of UX lectures gave me an accelerated understanding of all major UX Techniques. Thanks to this, I now take a more user centred approach to everything that I design. His constructive guidance nurtures students and helps them to achieve their potentials. Mike’s generous donation of time has been well-received from all students and has provided many a great launch pad into this competitive industry. Mike’s taste in music also gets my stamp of approval.
