I'm a sometimes member of this list so apologies for busting in
without having contributed for some time.
I'm writing an article for Interactions magazine and I would really
like to know how people are typically trained for interaction
I know the IxDA personas were based on a survey, though I haven't
seen the data, so don't know if they would answer my question.
Does anyone have any papers or surveys or data that might help me
answer this question? Ideally, I'd like to compare IxD to
professions such as law or accounting, in terms of degrees,
standardized tests, apprenticeships, and designations.
