How do you mentor large numbers of people quickly to help them get into UX or to develop in their UX career?
Mentorship is one of the best ways to learn in the UX field. With many different types of mentorship available, it’s easy to get started as a mentor or mentee.
The growing need for UX practitioners is driving academic institutions and industry to find innovative ways to blend research, professionalization, and teaching to inspire and train people to enter the workplace.
Delivering projects against a static set of requirements without taking a break to reflect and get a clear outlook is a sure way to lose perspective and stifle creativity.
Mentors support students with a high-touch, individualized user experience. In e-learning tools, adding mentors allows students to work at their own pace and meet their goals.
UXPA’s mentoring programs will begin in early 2013 and its primary mission is to provide services to those who are young in their UX careers.
