So I was just looking through my twitter feed and saw a public collaboration from a couple of local visual artists, one of which I know from his academic work, and I was thinking how great it is that he can share the fruit of his work with the community.
It got me wondering if there is anything that we as UX or Interaction Designers can do in the same way. It's obvious that most of what we do is not consumable in such a passive way as purely visual arts, but surely there is something we can do.
I wanted to share an announcement from Dr. Liza Potts, the new Chair for SIGDOC, the ACM Special Interest Group for the Design of Communication. The board has a strong interest in expending the organization's profile in industry and gaining new membership and new vision.
I'm a designer/newbie, I've been taking courses here and there and feeling a little fragmented, in many areas but we'll just stick to UX here. So I'm thinking of entering either the User Experience Certificate program at NYU or the 12 week design course offered at General Assembly. Anyone have any experience with the quality of their curriculum or their instructors? How about job placement program? Any suggestion would help I woud like some input before plopping down the ransom they demand. Or could these classes be duplicated?
I'm thinking aloud here, and wanted to hear some other opinions..
I'm an MFA Interaction Design graduate student doing my first internship as a UX designer. One of our clients planted a seed in my head that maybe I shouldn't finish my graduate program and just get into the job market, and that seed has taken root.
