Teaching Web Design

Web Design is an amazing field where you never stop learning, whether you are a student or a teacher! It is one of the fastest-growing career fields, where the sky is the limit. From website managers to programmers to user experience designers: you can apply your strategic thinking and creative skills there. It is one of the highest-paying in-demand jobs, which will be relevant in the years to come.
Websites are also the 21st-century business cards: your prospective employers and clients expect to get to know you before the interview. So, if you are looking to start your own business or to land your dream job in any field, you need a website!

Technology Covered:

Students learn the basics of managing a personal website: how to create a website from scratch and put it online. Tools include WordPress installation, e-commerce, coding with HTML, CSS, and JavaScript, Framer prototyping, designing for your target audience, and more! Students graduate from this class with a professional website for your next career step.

Teaching Philosophy

Having taught beginner and intermediate web design classes since 2015, I realized that one size doesn't fit all. Some students are interested in UX or launching a business website, and some students want to become web developers. That's why I use a project-based, personalized approach in my class. I also use role-playing and adaptive learning to make it meaningful and fun!

You will find a variety of final projects here, from e-commerce stores to blogs and artist portfolios!
