I'll be teaching a half-day workshop, plus delivering an Advanced Session at Oz-IA in September. If you haven't been to Oz-IA before, it's definitely the friendliest conference of the year. Held in Sydney every year by Eric Scheid, it's a great (and inexpensive) way to learn about information architecture, user experience, and interaction design from practicing experts.
Web applications are much easier to design than traditional web sites, right? I mean, there’s only one page in the site map! How hard could it be? Right?
Half Day Workshop
Friday 19th September, 8.30am-12.30pm
Half your skills as an interaction designer come from books, the other half from practice. In established design disciplines, the ‘studio’ is where designers hone their skills, rationale and intuition. Most people working in Interaction Design haven’t had the benefit of being able to explore design outside of ‘real’ work projects – hence this mini ”Interaction Design Studio”.
This workshop has been taught at CHI2007 and UPA 2008 in the US, but has never been taught before in Australia. (Well, apart from that ill-fated dry-run). So, come along for the Australian premiere!
