IxD training plan

I remember this topic being broached previously, but it didn't quite hit
home.
Saying that, something may well have come online since that discussion.

I'm responsible for the IxD training plan in my area, but am finding it
difficult to get creative. My own training until now has been largely
reading, practical experience and a dollop of 'self teaching' thrown in.
Whilst I've been lucky enough to attend a couple of conferences, I've never
managed to spot any formal quals (bar the obvious degree/postgrad stuff).

Are there any formal qualifications/certs that are becoming available to
IxDers?

"Designing Everyday Computational Things", Johan Redström

Hans didn't post the URL for this diss. It's at
http://www.viktoria.se/~johan/thesis/ and is exceptionally good. If
anyone's read Malcolm McCullough's recent "Digital Ground", Redström's
project covers pretty much the same topic, but is written as a series
of design case studies, which I find more interesting reading.

> For example, I have been interested in the work of Redstrom :
> Jonas Redstrom, Designing Everyday Computational Things
> Ph. D. Thesis. Gothenburg Studies in Informatics, No.

job opportunity in Framingham, MA

Hi, all,

I'm looking for a senior designer with excellent interaction design skills
and significant experience in usability testing and user research. This
person will have primary responsibility for my company's new email archiving
product--it's undergoing a complete UI re-write in the next release, which
should provide some great opportunities to start from the beginning in
re-thinking how it should work.

Connected is a small company, approximately 130 employees, based in
Framingham, MA. It's a great team to work with.

Re: Design specs (Was: Design Methodology for GU I

Interesting views. My 2p's worth...

I find it useful and productive to produce ui design
specifications/conceptual models written with 'qualification' of design
decisions. This is often an annotation of a screen layout which makes it's
way into a use-case down the line. What this tends to do is assure the
developers (naturally more receptive to factual logic rather than heuristic
logic) that decisions haven't been made on a 'because I said so' basis and
is a good way of communicating work flow and look and feel decisions in
context to each-other.

Articles on Interaction Design

Hi all,

I'm trying to formulate a definition of interaction design to use in my
graduate thesis (note: I study economics and the objective is to
familiarize the field of marketing and business with interaction
design).

Hi Jim

> "QE" stands for "Quality Engineering".

***PGP I figured as much. :-)

It used to be know largely as
