previous UX user experience psychology workshops

A workshop with your team on how to use psychology to improve your website, app and design process.

A practical, hands on way to understand how the human brain works and apply that knowledge to User Experience and product design. Learn the psychological principles behind how our brain makes sense of the world and apply that to product and user interface design.

I am a trained, experienced teacher so expect to be sketching, designing and applying the psychology from the very start.

What you’ll learn

Through a series of fun, practical exercises you’ll learn:

  1. Why you should match design to behaviour and what goes wrong when you don’t
  2. The psychological theory behind how people model a task
  3. How to match your design to the map/model and make it a success
  4. Mapping and designing the details using a psychological approach
  5. Loads of little psychology tidbits that will improve a design and make you a better designer

After the workshop

You’ll be able to:

  1. Design products, apps and websites that match how people think and behave
  2. Find, understand, evaluate and apply psychology theory to digital product design
  3. Make better, informed design decisions and advocate to the wider team using psychology theory

Come to the workshop and you’ll able to put psychology into practice as soon as you get back to the office.

Previous workshop feedback

It was an excellent workshop that was well paced, engaging and allowed us to put our learnings into practice. It was one of the best workshops I’ve attended.

Everything was really good! I learnt a lot new things from your experience / research. True eye opener!

Great pace, great speaker, hands on. Lots of fun and very engaging.

Joe is a brilliant teacher

[I] Never thought learning psychology could be that much fun! Joe’s workshop is fun, social and highly practical, now I can use psychology in my daily design life!
