Let’s face it. Technology moves fast; academia doesn’t. So how do we teach web design and development—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?

  1. What skills and technologies should colleges and universities we teach students who want to be web designers and/or developers? Why?
  2. Should students be educated in both web design and development or just one? Why?
  3. If you could create your dream curriculum for web design and development, what courses and information would you include? Why?
  4. What courses and information now in such programs would you eliminate? Why?
  5. What type of projects do you want to see in a recent graduate’s web design and/or development portfolio?
  6. How can colleges and universities keep web design and/or development curriculum current and relevant?
