Some summer reading as I re-evaluate the content of the web design units. Leslie Jensen-Inman is Assistant Professor at the University of Tennessee at Chattanooga where she teaches a mix of art, design, business, and technology. For her Masters she has produced an interesting read called Perspectives on web education: What to teach the next generation of web professionals. It has the thoughts of many web professionals and makes a series of recommendations. Take a look at: http://teachtheweb.com/monograph.php.
It will be interesting to see how much matches up with our own thoughts and methods. When we have guest speakers from the ‘real world’ we always like to tick off anything that we cover, that the professinals are emphasising in their presentation. We are also keen to pick up on new ideas and directions. This document may help in the same way. Thank you Leslie.
