English abstract:
Reflecting on experiences working in industry as a user experience consultant, I will discuss what I think are some of the core skills we need to teach students to enable them to work in industry as HCI experts, and provide examples of the hands-on, learning-by-doing-and-reflecting approach that we take in some of our classes, especially for screen-based interactions. I will also illustrate some examples of teaching students to engage with more open-ended design, especially with mobile and sensor-based technologies. Beyond these core skills, I will discuss how we try to encourage students to reflect on the broader issues and debates in HCI, positioning them to engage later in research as well as practice.
