Design Workshop at UI/UX Summit, Esri User Conference 2014

The workshop was to introduce people the vital role that User Interface Design and User Experience Engineering play in creating great products. We illustrated how we work at Esri and best practices from the UI/UX world, but mostly we used active learning of these concepts by having participants create a fictional product through all stages (from conceptualization and needs assessment to delivery) using various concepts and techniques. Our goal was to have them leave feeling that (1) this was doable, (2), fun, (3) and something they will incorporate into their own professional lives. It was not about the PRODUCT we have at the end, this workshop was about the PROCESS for working together and solving problems.
