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 number of adjunct professors, lecturers, and educators in the UX domain, to help explain why.

Together we’ll review the following:

  • Backgrounds
  • How to get started
  • Overview: masters programs, certificates, guest lectures, conferences/smaller events
  • Goal setting/What does success in teaching look like?
  • Challenges & Successes
  • Overall Tips- pay, rights to content, etc.
