Our industry is tackling important questions about AI right now. We think these questions are actually opportunities for UX writers and content designers to take charge.
We believe you can lead in this area. AI isn’t the goal, it’s a tool. The best way to use AI is by connecting it with UX writing best practices.
AI-focused course lessons
We’re adding new lessons to our existing courses that focus on how to use AI tools for every aspect of the UX writing process.
We think it’s crucial to be grounded in the fundamentals of whatever topic you’re learning, whether that’s UX writing, content, research, accessibility, localization, conversation design, and more. Only then can you understand how AI can help you.
For example, using AI to write strings has different considerations than using it for content research. Each of our courses takes a different approach, and our new AI-specific lessons reflect that.
We didn’t want to launch a course that’s just dedicated to general AI. We’re incorporating these lessons right into our current curriculum so you can learn the best practices in the context of your work, not just in isolation.
The lessons will be available for all existing and new students today for most courses, and we’ll have a few updates in the coming weeks.
AI in content design workshop
Learning how to use AI tools is great, but we’ve also heard from UX writers that want to know how to go beyond day-to-day work. They want to lead the effort in using AI in ways that actually help elevate content design as a discipline.
We’ll be debuting a new workshop called AI in Content Design: Ethics, Scale, and Impact.
In this workshop, you’ll learn:
- How to develop an ethical framework around content design for AI products
- How to scale your work using AI
- How to create an impact in your organization with tools built and led by content designers
We’re developing this workshop with Kristy Freeman, who led UX writing teams at CrowdStrike and Rivian, where she worked on UI text for self-driving cars. She understands what it means to develop ethical frameworks and approaches to using AI.
Join the workshop waitlist to be the first to hear about upcoming dates and times. We’ll have a bit more to say about artificial intelligence soon, but for now, we think this is a great way for any UX writer or content designer to get started. Hope to see you at a workshop or in a course soon!
