With a variety of device sizes and resolutions, learning to create a design that is responsive and looks good on all devices can be challenging. We guide students on how to use CSS grids, flexbox, media queries, and other responsive design principles, ensuring they can create designs that are adaptable to different screen sizes.
Ensuring that websites are accessible to all users, including those with disabilities, is a critical, yet often overlooked part of web design. Students may find it difficult to understand and implement these guidelines. We emphasize the importance of accessibility, teaching students how to use semantic HTML, ARIA roles, and other accessibility best practices.
Designs might look or function differently across browsers, and dealing with these inconsistencies can be frustrating for students. We teach strategies for browser testing and methods to ensure compatibility across different browsers, such as CSS normalization and feature detection.
Design Principles and Aesthetics
Some students may struggle with the aesthetic aspect of web design, including color theory, typography, and layout principles. We offer guidance in these areas, providing resources, feedback, and opportunities to critique and learn from others' work.
Maintaining Project Structure
As web projects grow in size, they can become difficult to manage. Students often struggle with structuring their projects and writing maintainable code. We teach students how to organize their files and write modular, reusable code, ensuring they develop good habits for larger projects.
Web Design is highly practical, and students often learn best by doing. Projects can involve creating a responsive website, designing a landing page, or building a personal portfolio site.
Use of Design Software
Incorporate the use of industry-standard web design tools such as Sketch, Figma, or Adobe XD into the curriculum. This provides students with practical experience that directly translates to professional skills.
In code-along sessions, the instructor live-codes a design while students follow along on their own devices. This helps demystify the process and allows students to see how a professional would approach designing a website.
Exploring Web Design Styles
Keep students updated with the latest web design trends and styles. Encourage them to incorporate these trends into their projects to understand their application.
Incorporating UX/UI Principles
Teach principles of user experience (UX) and user interface (UI) design. Practical exercises could involve user research, persona creation, user testing, and more.
Accessibility and SEO Integration
Train students in the importance of making websites accessible to all users and visible to search engines. Teach them to integrate these principles into their web design process from the start.
