Interaction Design Career Path

Hi all.... I can't remember whether there was a conversation about career
paths in our realm, so I thought I would start one. Currently I am a senior
IxDer and starting to plot out my career path. Would love to hear from
those who were in my shoes before that made the transition to the next step.
I'm curious as to not only your personal view on the career path, but the
employers' view on career paths in this realm too.
TIA,
David

During the Interactions 13 conference in Toronto, Paul Adams of Facebook advocated a radically different development cycle than the "ideal" user-centered one (qualitative user research first, then modelling and concept development, followed by prototyping, testing, and iteration).

Forms design - I'm researching and need help

Where are we on forms design today?

How far have we come on designing effective, intuitive, intelligent web forms? I'm researching forms design, both best practice and the more innovative ones. But I'm having a hard time finding really good examples.

HiOscar the insurance company is one example with some innovative qualities and certainly worth a study. But I'm searching for more advanced forms with higher complexity.

Can an interaction designer creat (great) interaction without (great) visual design skills?

Hi all,

in my daily work as an interaction designer I mostly create wireframes and
support the visual designers in their creation of the visual design for
these wireframes.

I notice though, that there is a strong dependency on how/if the interaction
will work and the (eventual) visual design.

My question: can an interaction designer create great working interaction
without having visual design skills?

Kind regards,
Rein Groot

User Experience Research & Design Remote Master of Science Degree (M.Sc.), UK

Hi all,

I'm looking for a recognised Master of Science degree in Interactive Design and/or User Experience Research and Design that can be studied by a working profesional online or remotely within the UK (as in the work can be achieved within the UK, the course could however be elsewhere). 

Its important that it is a officially recognised masters degree. 

It doesnt look like the Open University has a suitable course.

Are there any courses that anyone would recommend or think might be worth investigating?

Kind regards,

Phil
