The Missing Web Curriculum: What Every Web Professional Should Have Learned

URL:

Remember when your professor in college taught you how to concept, design, engineer, test, optimize, launch, and promote quality websites? No? Of course you don’t. That class didn’t exist back then, and it may in fact never exist.

In this session I will talk about reasons why web instruction in higher education is vastly disconnected from the real world, and propose solutions for improving the way we prepare students (and mid-career professionals) for jobs in the web industry. I’ll draw from my experiences as an instructor at Hennepin Technical College in comparison to my experience as the owner of Bust Out Solutions.

There will be plenty of time for discussion and questions.
