On planning, creating, and executing my year of self-study.

For the past year, I’ve been teaching myself user experience design. I designed a curriculum, found the resources, and completed a final project. After wrapping up my year of self-study, I thought I’d share why I decided to do it, how I got started, my goals for the year, my self-made curriculum, the resources I used, what went well, what didn’t, and, finally, if it was all worth it.

Skip to the end for the list of resources I used for my homemade curriculum.

Why I wanted user experience education in the first place
