Interaction Design Education Summit 19

The Interaction Design Education Summit will hold its seventh annual gathering at the start of Interaction Week 19, on 3-4 February 2019. This year’s summit will be co-hosted by Microsoft and the Design-Use-Build group at the University of Washington.

We invite professionals and students from academia, industry, and the public sector to explore the present state of interaction design education, and to bring together these great minds to set a vision for the future.
