Just wanted to share this for any interested in studying interaction design, service design, or social enterprise: Domus Academy is offering two 50% scholarships to their Master in Service Design (starting Sept 2011).
I'm already enrolled in the program and would love to study along with other talented folks. This competition brief in specific addresses one of the core reasons I'm interested in designing services, how can we design systems that encourage sustainable behaviors? If these sorts of topics interest you, take a gander.
I thought I'd get people talking about what it is they are looking to learn and where they are hoping to learn it kinda question.
There's a lot of formal EDU in IxD being created all around the world, but obviously, not everyone can jump into a 1-2yr program. So my question is what do you think you need to learn to be a better practitioner of IxD and how do you want to learn it?
I am in the process of a career transition. I currently work in Digital Asset Management, and am enrolled in a Library/Info Science Masters program (one with some IxD, or related, offerings). I also have a visual design background. I am NOT a 20-something/right out of college.
I am in need of some advice from the experienced mentors in IxDA. I am currently attending the University of Kansas working on my MA in Interaction Design. I am at a fork in by education trying to determine if I should complete my MA this fall or continue on for an additional 22 hrs and complete my MFA in Interaction Design. My work experience is limited to graphic design and marketing so I have no employment based IxD experience.
