IxD/ Human Centered Design Curricula and Philosophy

I am currently dealing with the question what students should be taught in in Interaction Design/ Human Centered Design and how the teaching should be done. For that reason I am in search for curricula and the philosophy behind them. Do you know of any resources?

For HCI there is e.g. the suggestion by the SIGCHI, which provides an extensive overview, but I could not find something like this for a design course.


Design guidelines for an interactive whiteboard

Hey everyone,

Recently I was asked to help design an interactive whiteboard application for the classroom. it is going to be a playful educative application about the basics of music production. The teacher is going to use it mostly, but the children also have to use it in some cases. One of the core teaching methods is collaboration.

My question is if there are any guidelines how to design such an application? The do's and don'ts? It also would be great if someone knows some good examples.

Teaching IxD through design challenges: Which challenges?

Hi all,
I am interested in teaching interaction design through problem
setting. I've seen a lot of books with titles like "Programming
challenges" and it makes a lot of sense to learn programming through
hands-on problem solving. I consider that the same is true of
Interaction Design.

That being the case, my questions are:

1. What graded list of problems or challenges would constitute part
of a good IxD course?

Education for a team of none

Hi all,

Over the past few years as a web designer I’ve noticed a lack of
education specific to people like me.

I wrote an article on the subject, and I implore you to read it.


In my article, I use an example of building robust personas. I
recently saw Jared Spool present on the topic.
