My name's Noah Ruede, and I'm a 22-year-old aspiring Interaction Designer.
spent three years studying Communication at Rutgers University before
learning about IxD. I was immediately fascinated by the field, so much
so that I have decided to transfer instead to CUNY City Tech's "Emerging
Media Technology" major, with the Media Design concentration on the
Interaction Design track.
I am currently dealing with the question what students should be taught in in Interaction Design/ Human Centered Design and how the teaching should be done. For that reason I am in search for curricula and the philosophy behind them. Do you know of any resources?
For HCI there is e.g. the suggestion by the SIGCHI, which provides an extensive overview, but I could not find something like this for a design course.
Hi Folks, you may be interested in a tender the we have just published for the development of a course to prepare and trial a module on Universal Design (UD), for use at first year degree level in 3rd level engineering, architecture and design courses in Ireland.
Hello everyone. I am a soon-to-be HCI graduate student who is looking for some input and comments about certain M.S. in HCI programs that I have been accepted into. Before I talk about the schools, let me say a few things about my intended career path.
The workshop is titled "Short Video Production for the Internet". It's open to non-members for $40 and takes place in El Segundo, CA. I'm passing this information along in case anyone is interested or has some experience with this workshop.
Recently I was asked to help design an interactive whiteboard application for the classroom. it is going to be a playful educative application about the basics of music production. The teacher is going to use it mostly, but the children also have to use it in some cases. One of the core teaching methods is collaboration.
My question is if there are any guidelines how to design such an application? The do's and don'ts? It also would be great if someone knows some good examples.
Just wanted to share this for any interested in studying interaction design, service design, or social enterprise: Domus Academy is offering two 50% scholarships to their Master in Service Design (starting Sept 2011).
I'm already enrolled in the program and would love to study along with other talented folks. This competition brief in specific addresses one of the core reasons I'm interested in designing services, how can we design systems that encourage sustainable behaviors? If these sorts of topics interest you, take a gander.
