1. What does SXD stand for?
SXD is short for Student Experience Design
2. How do I get involved?
There are plenty of ways to get involved with the SXD Lab. If you are a student, you can apply for an available job to support a project; join the research squad and/or join a user-research session as they become available. If you are an educator, you can adopt or adapt an openly-licensed student-led project; check out student-led research, insights and findings and/or advise a student-led project team. If you are an industry leader, you can also adopt or adapt a project and help us scale an idea. In some cases, events are open to the general public, if you would like to get involved and join an event, please visit the events page or contact us.
3. Who funds the projects and the lab?
Projects are primarily funded by eCampusOntario, who receives funding from the Ministry of Advanced Education and Skills Development. Thus, the SXD Lab is a publicly-funded venture, which is why all outputs are made publicly-available.
4. Where is the lab located?
Lab operations are primarily virtual. The project teams mainly work remotely but come together often through meetups, events and conferences. Members of the core team are located at the eCampusOntario head office at 211 Yonge St, Toronto, Canada.
