Good Classes for Wannabe IXD

Hi All, I was too poor to get into a school that offered an IXD program so I'm trying to sculpt one from the night school I'm going to. 

Do you have any suggestions of good classes to take? Any off the top of your head would be helpful, here is the link for my CSCI class options as well.

Thanks so much!

Ruminating an idea: Interest in a conference on Interaction Design Education

For the last bit I have been thinking about creating a separate conference that focuses on interaction design education. By no means is this an academic/research conference, but rather a summit, working group, that is interested in tackling the life-long issues of an interaction designer's career. I moved from industry to education because I saw deep issues in the career development of interaction designers, especially at the early stages of formal educaiton and have grown to hear a must wider perspective on the topic.

Undergraduate programs for HcI, HCC, and Informatics

After 4 years of education (2 year degree) focused heavily around aesthetic graphical design, and some time in the professional industry as an interface (ux) designer, I have decided to continue moving forward with further education. My passion for design interaction, mental cognition, and technology, leads me to believe that further education is the most logical step towards growing in these areas of focus–

ISCED classification of Interaction design

Hi everyone,

I was wondering if anyone knows how to categorize and classify Interaction design in ISCED (International Standard Classification of Education)?

I was denied the possibility to get a scholarship for studying abroad, because they categorized Interaction design as art, and they don't give any art scholarships. But on the other hand they categorized Industrial design as Technical education. I have still 11 days left to appeal against their decision. 

I am really thankful for any nugget of information.

Ph.D in UX related field (e.g. HCI) - Wil it be helpful enough as investment?

How do you think about Ph.D in UX related field (e.g. HCI or Interaction Design)?

There are many discussions going around in academia but some professionals has complained that the researches are not useful enough to apply to the working process for real products. They argues that the academia cannot lead the innovation for the next 5~10+ years any longer, and that sometimes they are even behind the industrial world.

Qualifications for Interaction Designers

Hello. I'm new to this site (as of 5 mins ago), and I've only recently heard the term 'Interaction Design' and discovered that in-fact this term applies to most of my body of work. I don't have any formal eductaion in Interaction Design specifically, but I have a BFA in Computation Art & Design (where this term was never ever discussed or even mentioned) and I have a diploma in general science with a major in psycology. I've been working in web for only about 3 years so I guess I'm a newbie.
