Teaching

I mostly teach Interaction Design courses; Introduction and Advanced Web Design, Mobile Application Design, and Data Visualization. The courses involve an in-depth research process to understand users and problems students want to explore. Based on the five elements of Interaction Design principles — Words, Visual Representations, Time, Physical Objects/Space, and Behavior,  Interaction Design projects are built to satisfy the key elements of Interaction Design.

I volunteered to research Interaction Design curricular and pedagogical routes that are the right fit for our design curriculum. I believe that Interaction Design is a moving target and that the curriculum should stay nimble and agile in order to keep pace with handling the many changes in the profession. The main IA curricular work is ongoing and is built through a series of conversations with faculty, students, alumni, and designers in the field.

My teaching methodology on Interaction Design Research and the student outcomes have been presented and published on AIGA Design Educator Conference,  UCDA (University & College Designers Association) Design Educator Summit, and Cumulus (International Association of Universities &  Colleges of Art, Design, and Media) and SECAC (The Southeastern College of Art Conference).
