Interview Premise

Let’s face it. Technology moves fast; academia doesn’t. So how do we teach web design and developmentā€”a subject that is constantly changing? How do we prepare our students for the real-world and for real-world expectations? And how do we, as educators, stay up-to-date about the information we are teaching?

The best way to approach this topic is to seek the expertise of leaders in the web design and development fields. As the people who will hire our students, they should have input about what type of students we are producing. With that in mind, I interviewed thirty-two leaders in the fields of web design and development, each of them is acutely aware of the importance of formally educating the next generation of web designers and developers.
