With just a week to go we've still got some tickets for edUi 2012 (http://eduiconf.org) available. We sold out last year and we'd love to repeat that success again this year. We still have space in three of our workshops: LeanUX, jQuery, Web Accessibility (one is included with your registration).
IxDA readers get $100 off making all two and a half days just $450. Use the promo code ‘ixda’ when you begin checkout.
I am a bachelor of fine arts (Visual Communication and Applied art) from India. I have been working in the field for e-learning from past 6+ years. I am now planning to take up the masters degree in HCI.
I'm trying to figure out which schools are churning out good candidates to fill junior IxD positions, and what these schools are calling the degree undergraduates receive (our HR department needs a better understanding). Schools in Southern California would be of particular interest since that's where we're located.
That said, if anyone steers clear of hiring recent undergrads (favoring instead graduate students or only those with a minimum level of real-world experience---regardless of education), I'd love to hear your thoughts.
