Collaborative Learning of Usability Experiences (CLUE) is a Natural Sciences and Engineering Research Council (NSERC) funded industry-based Collaborative Research and Training Experience (CREATE) program offered through 3 Universities and more than 30 industry participants.
The Collaborative Learning of Usability Experiences (CLUE) CREATE project will train Canada’s future leaders in HCI. Our long term goal is to improve our trainees’ capabilities across the disciplinary boundaries facilitated via a number of short term objectives that will provide additional training with workshops and mini-courses above and beyond the training they currently receive. The CLUE program will culminate with an internship based in usability experiences. This applied learning will enhance job prospects, as practical experience is a valuable asset in securing a job.
