- Sally, from a large enterprise MedTech company, attended all 4 session sessions and told us:
“I am really glad I took the time to attend. I am already using some of the learnings. ‘What’ before ‘How’!”
- Another participant who attended Dan Klyn’s Understanding IA session shared: “The IA workshop was very helpful. There wasn’t too much information. The information was easier to understand than expected.”
- One participant shared this about Amy Goldmacher’s Designing User Experience workshop: “Even for someone with prior experience, it was reassuring and validating to go over all the basics. Along the way I learned a lot of very helpful tidbits that I’ll be able to apply in my workplace. Most importantly, the exercise at the end took hours of work off my plate and was exactly what I needed to go forth into a new UX project.”
For this inaugural round, we offered 4 different workshops: Understanding IA, Designing User Research, Aligning Stakeholders, and Modeling for Clarity. While each class is self-contained, the curricula was coordinated to cover interlocking skills that were solidified by hands-on practice.
It was so much fun that we are doing it again in May: we will offer the same 4 IA workshops on May 21-23 in Ann Arbor and July 16-18 in Grand Rapids (with special pricing for students). We can only host up to 8 people in each class so if you’re considering it, don’t delay. We’d love to see you.
