We have significant supplementary material available in a separately published Instructor’s Guide. The material is all about how to mount a college-level (or other) course on user experience design and is complete enough to support even an instructor who is new to this topic.
To access the supplementary materials, follow these two steps:

Founded on many years of experience and refinement through detailed usage of our own in real courses, the instructor’s guide contains many helpful suggestions on approaches to teaching the material and how best to use classroom time. It is especially helpful in providing the necessary details for setting up project assignments and deliverables, and rubrics for grading them.
We also provide suggested lecture slides ready for presentation or for instructors to adapt into their own presentation slides. These lecture slides reflect our presentation and refinement of this material in our always popular and over-subscribed UX/HCI classes at Virginia Tech. (We received heretofore unheard-of perfect 4.0/4.0 student evaluation of the graduate-level UE course for five recent times it was taught.)
These sample semester-long team-oriented project assignments are not just sketches of project assignments, but very specific thorough point-by-point descriptions of 6 or 7 major student project team deliverables, the details of which have been developed and refined with every offering of our UX/HCI course at Virginia Tech. The preface tells about how each team can find a local real-world client, expected documentation standards, and the audience for project reports. Each sample assignment includes sections on what to do, how to do it, deliverables, and grading guidelines.
