The Goal:

Create interactions and experiences that stimulate memory and cognitive functions to facilitate communication between veterans and their service dogs

The Team:

Designers, Product Managers and Developers from around the world will converge on the Cooper offices for 4 days to immerse themselves in Cooper’s Goal-Directed Design methods and take their design-thinking to a whole new level.

The Client:

Canine Companions for Independence, a California based non-profit, enhances the lives of individuals with disabilities by providing highly trained assistance dogs and ongoing support.

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.

What is the UX Boot Camp?

The 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. In past UX Boot Camps, participants have designed digital tools to ignite demand for fairly traded goods and explored how radio programs of the future can engage with their audiences.
