Product Design Instructor Profile: Jon White

Tell us a little about yourself and your current work outside of Experience Haus? 

I’m currently working for Bookatable as a User Researcher, it goes hand in hand with what I really love doing, which is being able to shape frustrations into actions.

Did you have a specific goal you wanted to achieve before you started teaching at Experience Haus? Do you think your time here so far has kept you on the right track?

I’ve always been interested in sharing knowledge, either as a student or a teacher. To that end I wanted to be able to share what I know and help inspire new designers to create products that put the user at the heart of the work. I’d also like to think that I’m empowering people to think in different ways and be more confident in their skills.

What is your teaching philosophy?

Learn by doing, and never stop asking questions.

What do you enjoy most about teaching at Experience Haus?

What I enjoy most about teaching at Experience Haus has got to be the students! It’s so interesting to me to meet people with so many varied backgrounds and help them channel their energies and encourage their curiosities.

How would you describe your dream classroom?

The perfect classroom would have a whiteboard that self-cleans, pens that never run out, sharpies and post-it notes in constant supply, a crystal clear screen with a powerful sound system. The perfect students are curious, engaged, and willing to put aside everything they “know” so they can learn a new process.

Where do you see yourself in 5 years?

I would love to be able to keep teaching alongside my work, and in 5 years I hope to be able to lead a UX team in a company that really invests in user experience through the whole business.

How do you keep up to date with your industry and the courses you teach?

I take workshops, read articles, and “talk shop” with fellow professionals
