Work in Progress - In the Spring of 2023, I will endeavor to work collaboratively with students to develop an open textbook for the Art 26: UX Visual Design course. As this class has only been offered once in the past and in general the UX courses are new at Kingsborough there isn't an obvious single authority on the subject. As a practitioner in the field professionally, I grow concerned that even if a solid text could be found in print that industry changes happen so frequently that the only helpful authority will need to be a dynamic work. Hence, I've built a new CUNY Commons site for the purposes of working with the students to define and build out this resource. In so doing I hope the students will learn through the production of the resource and at the same time build into a dialectic with future students as the courses grow and course work expands.
