IxDA wants to create an organic system of mentors who are willing to work with community members, on a one-on-one basis, to help nurture and develop expertise in a specific area of Interaction Design. Being a mentor can be a richly rewarding experience, through seeing your guidance and advice improve another's practice of interaction design, and as a personal learning experience for the mentor.
There has been an incredible amount of interest and demand for this program. We are currently unable to match enough mentors with mentees. We are temporarily suspending the collection of mentee interest until we have determined the best way to manage the process.
