Your performance will be assessed through a portfolio process. You should start on your portfolio early in your course work.
In your online portfolio, you will document your mastery of user experience and usability competencies through narratives and supporting examples of work. You will work with a faculty advisor to ensure that your portfolio meets all requirements.
The internship is coordinated with the Information Experience Lab activities, wherein you can participate in weekly meetings via virtual conference tools and work on team projects. An alternative project for the internship can be coordinated with a local, national or international company or organization. Students can complete the internship at a distance and are not required to move to Columbia or quit their job. Expected time commitment during the fall and spring semesters is approximately 6 to 8 hours per week.
