Information Architecture 3.0
Oct 16 with Peter Morville
As we venture beyond Web 2.0, how do we reconcile the timeless
principles of design and organization with new transmedia models
of interaction, co-creation, tagging, and user participation? In
this advanced seminar, Peter Morville -- widely regarded as a
father of information architecture -- draws upon stories,
examples, case studies, and discussions to explore the future
present of information architecture and user experience.

Foundations of Interaction Design
Sept 12 with Karen McGrane
For anyone who designs, builds, markets, or manages digital
products (like websites, software, or devices), an understanding
of the foundations of the field will help you make more
effective decisions. You will learn the essential history that
shaped the industry, making you better prepared to face the
challenges of tomorrow. Karen is a Senior Partner in Bond Art
and Science, and previously served as the Vice President and
National Lead for User Experience at Avenue A | Razorfish.

Interaction Design for Web Applications
Six sessions starting Sept 5 with David Malouf
Expert web application designer David Malouf has created a
seminar exploring the most important issues surrounding the
web's most sophisticated applications. In this
information-packed seminar he will give you a solid introduction
to Rich Internet Applications and demonstrate the value RIAs can
add to your web application. David is the Vice President and
founding director of the Interaction Design Association and
works at Motorola Enterprise Mobility.

Moving User Experience into a Position of Greater Corporate
Sept 8 with Richard Anderson
What can you do to move UX into a position of greater influence
where you work? Explore and formulate answers to this question
in a special workshop led by Richard Anderson, UX practice,
management, and organizational strategy consultant and incoming
Co-Editor-in-Chief of interactions magazine.

Managing the Online-Offline Partnership
Oct 9 with David Wertheimer
Thinking strategically and practically, we will explore why
offline professionals have trouble relating to Internet tenets
and the ways in which knowledge can be shared. We'll deconstruct
the reasons why an online team has an outsider, or renegade,
feel, and discuss the methods for imparting wisdom and gaining
buy-in. Students will leave with new ideas and solutions for
making online concerns an everyday focus of a company. David is
the director of Internet marketing at the Clarins Groupe and the
former web design director at The Economist.
