UI/UX Design from scratch

I teach students to argue for what decisions they made in the process. I make them gather good examples and teach them how to present their works. One important part in learning is the basic knowledge about business goals and they influence the design, and why you need to lean on your goals when choosing your ideas. When I have free time I listen to rock operas, play poker, pass quests and take photos.
