I have a BA in Industrial design, I would love to pursue an IxD master's degree but there is a serious hurdle: they are expensive, but there might be a solution: Funding, but...
Fact: There is a lot of funding opportunities if you are pursuing an engineering or a science degree all around US and Europe, you have to look for research positions on their websites and/or get in touch with professors.
Question: Is there such opportunities for IxDers or designers in general ?
I am about to start studying at the Open University (opens in new window), and picking modules that will increase my knowledge and progress my career as a UX designer. The modules cover cognitive psychology, technology and design. This is what I am looking at so far:
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.
I'm new to the community, thanks in advance for the welcome :) So I've been out of college since 07, and I'm in a pretty unique situation with my current role and I'd like some advice for how to proceed.
Join us in Charlottesville, VA this November for a unique conference on web design, user interface, user experience design and development for web professionals serving institutions of learning. IXDA members can save $100 off registration!
I know there has been prior discussion to some aspects of what I am going to ask, but the background is a little different this time.
-After a Masters in Computer Science, why should one pursue Masters degree in Interaction Design or Information Design? At a more abstract level, why are design studies essential for
Software or Computer Science guys?
- Isn't it possible for a Software guy or a Computer Science guy to get the required knowledge in the areas of Information design and/or Interaction design with experience?
Hi all - I know some of you can't bear the term service design, but I also know many of you (like me) find it very much akin to your IxD or UX work. I could do with some help spreading the word on a collaborative online project I'm running based on a series that we have done over annually called Creative Waves.
