hi
im a student in the crossroads of turning into a professional ;)
i have few unanswered questions to discuss...

Part one:
Till some time back.. I was pretty clear of the word 'interaction design'.
till I saw some works loosely replacing this word with things done by HCI
professionals and UI designers.

Now...I am little confused abt this word 'interaction design'..What does
this word 'interaction design' mean to people in the profession?

Part two:
Interaction design deals with interaction, function, usage, aesthetics,
and culture. so Is interaction design closer to 1),2) or 3)
1)Architecture
2)Product design
3)Visual design/HCI

thnx

This probably doesn't directly answer your question... I find I design
use techniques most similar to "product design", but using information
most like HCI. If I was recommending coursework inside a typical
university, I would suggest product design coursework combined with some
cognitive psychology.
