[IXDA] Anyone taken Cooper's Interaction Design Practicum? Is it *really* Interaction Design training?

Hi All,

I'm looking for some good training in Interaction Design to Supplement a Master's in HCI that touched on the topic. About Face was one of my required texts, so naturally I looked toward Cooper for training, but the curriculum just doesn't seem to address designing interactions.

Any thoughts?

UX mentor and/or design projects wanted to help build experience!

I've been in the UX field for 3+ years now but I keep hitting a series of bumps (starting with a layoff in 2009) that have prevented me from expanding my professional design portfolio. The majority of my professional work has revolved around usability evaluation and user research, although I have done some design work professionally, on the side, and in grad school. For the past year, my professional work has focused on usability testing and user research.

Looking for Guidance


I am glad that I have found this portal. I am a Industrial Designer and I was laid off in 08.

I have not even had one interview for a job in my field. I was going to take advantage of

some of the training funds available. I am considering a certification offered at NCSU for

web developer. It seems to be a lot to cover in 3 months. Is this something that will put

me in demand with my design background? I have also considered working on a Phd.

I aspects of user centered design and interface design. Input would be a great help.

UX Training

Hi All,

I am considering some UX training and am interested in either the CUA training offered by HFI or the UXD "Mini-Masters" program at Rutgers. Any thoughts on either of these programs? Unfortunately I don't have a lot of time or money to put into this training but am looking for a good overview program and something that I can put on my resume.

Thanks in advance for your input; here are links to both programs:
