As the UX industry grows, more opportunities to train new generations of researchers are emerging. Experienced practitioners with full-time jobs now make up adjunct professor or instructor positions in graduate programs, bootcamps, and online learning programs. But why should UXers branch out into teaching, on top of full-time work? This panel will bring together a adjunct professors, lecturers, and educators in the UX domain, to help explain why.

Together we’ll review the following:
  • Backgrounds
  • Why do we teach?
  • Challenges & Successes
  • How to get started
  • What's involved in creating your first course?
  • Overall Tips- pay, rights to content, etc.
