Hello Ian,
Emily Carr University of Art + Design has an undergraduate Interaction Design program that has been running for three years. The program has a strong emphasis on experimentation in 2D (screens) and 3D (physical computing) environments. I'm a professor at Emily Carr and can answer any questions you may have, email me here: harmen(at)ecuad.ca

I have also been co-chairing the IxDA Education initiative that gathers every IxD conference to discuss challenges of teaching interaction design.

CCA's new Interaction Design program (now-two years old) is also excellent (I realize that I work at CCA but it's not my program and I'm, personally, impressed with the curriculum and the students moving through it). It's focused on people and humanism and not just on technology so it treats technology as important but transient and interaction as something that happens as much between people (and other people), in spaces, and in time, as between a finger and a display. It's also got the advantage of being in, currently, the largest center of interaction design and innovation in the world (the SF Bay Area) so the surrounding culture is not only very supportive but offers a lot of other kinds of opportunities.

thanks for you reply, I am preparing for the portfolio recently, could you give me any suggestion? I have seen the requirement on the CCA's webiste, but I am still little bit confused of it.
