"eye-opener", "excellent", "enthusiastic", "challenging" were some of the words used to describe round one of the Sydney Chapter mentoring program.
Once again, we'd like to thank the participants from round one for their patience and giving their time and experience; we invite them to continue with the program should they wish. The program ran from Sept-Nov 2012 and involved 15 pairings. We elicited feedback from this inaugural group to improve the program and are ready to roll out and expand the next session.
If you missed the IxD13 Education Summit, I put together a recap of the ideas that came out of it. Lots of good fodder here for how IxDA could help improve design education, get it into schools earlier, etc etc etc.... Read the blog post.
I'd appreciate it if you could please take 5 minutes to complete this survey on continuing education. Please feel free to forward the survey link (below) to others you think might be interested in continuing education and graduate studies.
At Cooper, we believe you learn best by putting new skills into practice solving the kinds of challenges designers face on a daily basis. That’s why we designed UX Boot Camp, a four-day crash-course in our user experience design methodology that gives you a real-world problem to solve along with the toolkit you’ll need to tackle it.

I have been a lurker but this is my first official post. I recently published a book titled "Interdisciplinary Interaction Design: A Visual Guide to Basic Theories, Models and Ideas for Thinking and Designing for Interactive Web Design and Digital Device Experiences." It's a book geared towards interactive design educators to help transition their students to thinking about interaction design. I try to use visual diagrams and metaphors to make some foreign concepts more accessible.
I'm looking to get a Bachelor's degree in Interactive Media Design. I already have an Associates in Humanities/Social Sciences. Franklin University has a major but they're kind of a no name school. Does anyone know of a school that offers a program that is based on UI/UX? Thanks!
