Online via Zoom

Join the Touro College Graduate School of Technology (GST) and presenter Mark Jones, for a free, GST online workshop on product design.

At GST's Workshop, Mark will provide you with a multi-layered presentation on:

  • How the basics of Agile ecosystems have embraced UX Designers and led them to become more product-centered
  • How a UX designer sees projects more holistically and less as features
  • How being a Product Designer allows you to be a user advocate and have UX ownership of a product from not just inception but right through the development cycle too

…and much more!
