Hello, everybody! Our friends at the Big Design Conference and DFW-UPA have announced their newest workshop in Dallas on October 23 from 10AM-430PM. The details can be found at: http://bigdworkshop05.eventbrite.com. Your instructor is AJ Wood, who is an Adobe Certified Professional and owner of Media-Kats, a local Dallas firm that specializes in training. You will not be disappointed.
Looking for recommendations on training/certification for Interaction Design. There doesnt seem to be much out there. Has anyone taken Macadamian's "Certified User Interaction (CUID) Designer" , or have any other suggestions?
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.
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.
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:
