DesignLab is a mentor-led online design education platform focused on training people in UX and UI design. DesignLab has two main types of learning experiences: an intensive program, UX Academy, for students who are looking to land jobs in UX design, and four-week long crash courses in particular UX design topics, such as user research, interaction design, and user interface design. Hundreds of students from around the world enroll each month in DesignLab courses, and DesignLab partners with UX designers to serve as course mentors.
“Erika is amazing! It can sometimes be difficult for me to take constructive feedback, but she is always so encouraging and helpful! She provides additional links to resources which I always get a lot from and it helps me to grow in my learning process.”
As a short course mentor, I hold weekly 1-on-1 coaching meetings and provide individualized feedback on students’ course assignments. As a facilitator and educator at heart, I am passionate about building relationships with others who are passionate and curious about solving problems through design and to support them along their professional journeys.
