IxD Career has no followers yet. Be the first one to follow.
I will present an experience report and co-conduct a 3 hour workshop. Topic? Design studio. I am especially excited about the workshop. I think the design studio process will lend itself well to the hands on experience.
I'll let you know how it goes...
Link to the conference website below.
Jeff White and I are at it again with the design studio thing. Great conference and our talk went very well. Link to the case study below via the ACM digital library (you'll need an account, and it's not free!).
Jeff White and I presented "User Interface Design in an Agile Environment: Enter the Design Studio". In summary, we related how we work with agile teams to bring user centered research into a participatory design workshop. See link below for more...
Who would have thought I would be working for a home shopping network? Not me! But the environment was right and the people are great. Besides, I wanted to build a team of UX designers. Main task - provide the design vision for a unified system that would replace dozens of organically growing, legacy internal applications. That system is now in place and growing. I also built my team!
Taught a group of about 20 librarians and technologists the mechanics of task based usability testing. That was in the afternoon. In the morning we created personas and covered writing for the web. Busy day and I loved it. So did my students.
I presented work we had done at the Naval Postgraduate School to an audience of about 250 in Columbia, SC. I explained how to leverage a taxonomy to inform information architecture. The talk was well received. Link to my slides below!
Web design, content management systems, taxonomy, usability studies, heuristic analysis - all fun, but the best part was the ocean 2 blocks away...
MS in Information, specialization - Human computer Interaction. Moving to Monterey, CA next week!
Provided mockups and information architecture for the continued redesign of the library website.
On the Air Force base - amazing! I hear they bounce laser beams off of the mountains for fun! Best gig this summer: Working with the Advanced Concepts Group. I designed and built a community of interest web portal prototype for a very distinguished group of scientists, business persons, and academicians. Also helped redesign the library website and provided a recommendation to consolidate search pages on the intranet.
Studied contextual inquiry, user centered design, usability testing, heuristic evaluation, and much more!
B.Sc. Computer Information Systems. Summa cum laude - yeah! Am moving from Phoenix to Ann Arbor this summer to attend grad school. Will specialize in Human Computer Interaction at the UM School of Information.
Began my pursuit of my bachelor's degree in computer information systems. School during the day and cooking at night...
