Work in groups or as individuals in your IxD work

I know that everything we do is collaborative in that we have to work with
biz & tech and often other roles of design like visual, copy, research, etc.

But my question is how often do you find yourself collaborating on group
work in your specific role as an IxD or UX designers?

I ask this question b/c when I look back on my work career there were very
few moments when I did work in a group.

Interaction Design or HCI higher studies

Hello,

I intend to pursue a Masters Degree in Interaction Design or HCI from
US or Canada (MDes or MS).

I am about to finish my Graduate studies in Computer Science (MS in
CS) with a GPA of 3.1 (including one really low grade). I have some
pretty strong project work that can cover-up the GPA deficiency to
some extent. Also I have taken courses like Virtual Reality and User
Interface Design.

Given this background, is it wise to even try for higher studies in
interaction design or HCI?

Mini Design Challenge Suggestions

Hi,

Does anyone have suggestions of topics for quick (~10 minutes) design
challenge scenarios?

The University of Michigan SOCHI (Student Org. in Computer Human
Interaction) is hosting an event to practice our rapid sketching and
ideation skills, particularly in preparation for upcoming job
interviews that many of us have. We've done sketching scenarios like
this in the past and would love some fresh ideas.

Are there any scenarios that you've encountered during IXD/UX
interviews that might be good to practice with?
