Have you noticed what Leslie Jensen-Inman and Jared Spool are doing at The Unicorn Institute? Anyone with an interest in web education should take a look at what they are doing and join them in their effort.
Here’s the goal.
We can create the next generation of UX professionals, also known as Unicorns, by connecting industry, education, and community.
Here’s a bit more about what they are doing.
We know UX design career pathways and education need a transformation. So we’ve set out on a research adventure to determine what skills UX designers need and what type of learning environment is best suited to practice and to apply those skills. Our goal: Find out everything we can to create the next generation of UX design unicorns.
You can sign up with them to stay informed and participate at the web site. They are looking for students, teachers, hiring managers, and “fellow adventurers” to join them.
Go look at what they are doing and consider helping out.
