"I thought the class was very informative and helpful. I was intrigued by the differences and similarities of interview vs usability studies (particularly moderated). I find there are strategies in one you could use in the other in all stages."
"While I've conducted a few interviews in my career so far, I've been desperate to better learn detailed skills in interviewing and how to impactfully and effectively learn about users/people This course met and exceeded my expectations — great if you're starting out and also digs deep into all that goes into interviewing. If you're a research nerd and passionate about interviews, this is absolutely a course worth taking. Thank you!! I was so excited and hopeful this course would help me improve my skills and learn how to better listen, learn, and help my team(s) gain insights and empathy. This was everything I was hoping it would be! LOVED the exercises, really helpful."

"Maria is extremely engaging and knowledgeable. This class not only touched on but expanded upon what I already knew of user interviews and I'm excited to put it into practice what we discussed today."
"I would highly recommend this course! Maria was fabulous. I thoroughly enjoyed the exercises and the chance to network and get to know others who were taking the course as well. It was great to see how everyone was taking in the information and being able to learn off of one another."
"It was a really good course. The delivery was great. Maria was very knowledgeable of the domain. She made the class engaing and attended to any questions we had. I feel like I'll espcially benefit from the recommended reading material."
