September 26 - LOU ROSENFELD
Adaptable Information Architecture: How to Say No to Your Next Redesign
Is your site stuck in a cycle of redesign after expensive, painful redesign?Are you tired of making short-term, cosmetic changes, and never really solving problems for your site's users?Then attend this workshop!
Lou Rosenfeld, co-author of Information Architecture for the World Wide Web, will teach you practical skills and show you design approaches that will help you tune and tweak your site's information architecture, improve your users' experiences with your site, all while costing your employer less than just about any redesign initiative.
September 27 - STEVE KRUG
Do-It-Yourself Usability Testing: The Workshop
Usability testing is the single most valuable thing you can do to improve a Web site, a Web application, or a piece of software, and not nearly enough of it gets done. In this day-long workshop, Steve Krug, author of Don't Make Me Think and Rocket Surgery Made Easy, will teach you how to do your own low-cost/no-cost testing that's simple enough to make it a routine part of your design process.
September 28 - STEVE PORTIGAL
Interviewing Users: Spinning Data into Gold
While we know, from a very young age, how to ask questions, the skill of getting the right information from users during interviews is surprisingly complex and nuanced. And then, what are we even supposed to do with all that data? This session will focus on getting past obvious facts and superficial observations, to deeper, more subtle, actionable insights.
In this day-long participatory workshop, Steve Portigal, author of the forthcoming The Art and Craft of User Research Interviewing, will teach you best practices for managing and conducting interviews, and for turning those data into insights and opportunities.
