The craft of UX: The need for apprenticeships and practice

A session at Interaction12

Saturday 4th February, 2012

2:10pm to 2:20pm (DMT)

What do bakers, metalsmiths and user experience professionals have in common? They’re all crafts, but unlike other crafts, UX doesn't have a mentality of apprenticeship and practice. I argue that because UX requires broad knowledge across a number of disciplines, practical experience, and people skills, simply getting a degree and attending conferences isn't enough.
