The Flexible Classroom: Teaching Multidisciplinary UX Design

February 4, 2017 2:15 PM - 3:00 PM

Those trying to get into the field of UX have to clear some hurdles in order to do so. They need both training and experience. What if design programs could find a way to bridge the gap between school and industry that offers both flexible curriculum and real-world experience? This presentation will examine three multidisciplinary UX course models that have been taught over the past 5 years. From co-teaching to collaborating with agencies, this talk will share insights that highlight the successes and challenges of teaching and developing curriculum for a quickly evolving field like UX, including examples of student outcomes and experimental course structures.
