Learn with TUG


At TUG, we love what we do, and we welcome the opportunity to share our knowledge and enthusiasm with you. Our IA experts teach workshops and give talks to IA practitioners around the world. With a wealth of project experience spanning more than a decade, we speak to the real world issues of information architecture strategy and implementation.

Public Events


Engaging and fun, these public events are hosted by TUG’s world experts in the IA field. From workshops at conferences to free public lectures, there is something for every level of interest.

We regularly publicize these opportunities on our website and in our monthly email newsletter.

On-Site Workshops


Conveniently offered onsite at your company, these rigorous and fast-paced courses are designed to deliver IA skills that you can start applying immediately.

Custom Learning


Our experts take time to become acquainted with your business model, culture, product, team, and design cycle. We use this information to carefully tailor our instruction to the specific needs and strengths of your company.

Custom-tailored learning is ideal for organizations that wish to build on our onsite workshop curriculum or want a combination of our workshops.

“TUG people are really down to earth. They listen and they understand. They apply their knowledge in thoughtful and meaningful ways and it’s not intimidating and it’s not pretentious. I like that.” —Michael Blum, eCommerce Channel Manager, Herman Miller
