Five-minute presentation as part of a panel, "(How Is This All) Going To Work? What We Teach, How We Learn, and What Employers Want"

An ambitious panel which seeks to illuminate the thoughts, themes, and threads that connect practice and teaching, students with knowledge and job-seekers with rewarding opportunities to practice. 7 short talks representing a wide continuum of UX work and preparation for work, including a graduate student, two teachers, a recruiter, a junior-level practitioner, the director-level practitioner she reports to, and a UX practice manager in charge of hiring for a large company.
