This is the #1 requested topic from UX professionals. Makes sense, most of us don't get to learn it, yet it's critical to our success as researchers. You can do the best research ever, but if you can't craft compelling research narratives it'll all go to waste. So don't let it!
Researchers have cluttered minds, packed with data and insights that we must organize, synthesize, and communicate. It's a monumental challenge, so in this course, I introduce the second brain concept with unique adaptations to a researcher's needs.
If you're just "managing stakeholders", you're doing it wrong. Learn how to extend relationship-building frameworks to the realm of UXR, level up your feedback chops, and elevate your research through deep, meaningful partnerships.
There are several key concepts in UXR that are incessantly discussed but rarely if ever translated into practical tools. If you want to be a more empathetic, humble researcher, you'll get the tools to do so here.
Bias is a powerful adversary to researchers. Learn how to conduct more rigorous research by employing "alternative thinking" techniques, also known as "liberating structures" and combat the biases harming your research.
Noam is a Senior Research Manager at Twitter, a content creator on his platform UX quests, a contributor to the Learners platform, a mentor on UX Coffee Hours and ADPList, and a guest lecturer at places like Stanford, UDub, and his Alma Mater in Israel, IDC Herzliya.
For most of his career, Noam has pushed back against the notion of “soft skills”, realizing that they are foundational skills in the UX realm. He’s spent countless hours studying these skills and this course represents the culmination of these learnings, as they apply to the field of UX Research.
Noam holds a Bachelor's degree in psychology and media from the IDC in Israel, and a Ph.D. in Psychology with a focus on personality psychology and quant research from The University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign.
He's worked on the user experience of missile-defense systems, revolutionary travel platforms, modern conversational relationship platforms, next-gen financial technology, and these days on the health of our public conversation on social media.
We'll assess your foundational skills, learn about concepts like "the second brain", and apply them in a way that'll help you reduce your information overload, fully uncover nuanced behavioral patterns, and unlock the full potential of your insight-gathering work.
In the second week, we'll level up your research execution skills. We'll learn how to move from "managing stakeholders" to cultivating incredible partnerships. How to evolve your ability to practice fuzzy concepts like empathy and humility in research... And how to train your counterfactual mind to combat bias.
In this week, we'll begin with the universal foundations of storytelling. Then we'll discuss what it takes to craft compelling, impactful, insight-driven stories and leverage them in your work. Finally, We'll deconstruct the elements of persuasion and practice how to resonate with any audience, every time.
In our final week together, we'll revisit our key concepts, jump into advanced techniques and templates you can apply in your day-to-day work, and enjoy a guest workshop that'll add fresh perspectives to everything we learned.
This course focuses on live workshops and active participation.
You’ll be learning in public through breakout rooms and an engaged community.
Surround yourself with like-minded people who want to grow alongside you.
