Usability testing at a user conference

Our Marketing dep't wants me to do "usability testing" at an upcoming user conference -- a gathering of our software users. The conference's purpose: for users to improve their software skills and to learn about upcoming product advancements.

I proposed a card sort, because it's low-tech, relatively quick, and needs little setup. This meets y needs (I have something I need sorted), but does not meet the conference goals; it won't help users improve their skills or learn about upcoming product advancements. So it got lots of thumbs down.

The link to all our requirements is at http://listguide.ixdg.org/

I'm copying here the Job Posting guidelines below.

Thank you for posting jobs ...

Question about resume/ portfolios

Hi Folks, I curious to know people's thought are on what would
constitute a good portfolio for an Interaction Design/Usability job
seeker. I essentially straight from grad school to teaching;never had to
review resumes in my previous career :) and now my students are asking
those type of questions. Hopefully people have some experiences to
share/advice I can give to them. Should they avoid flash online
portfolios? Do them only in HTML..etc

ixd curriculum

Anyone in the list interested in discussing what an
interaction design curriculum would look like, rather
then where we have all come from?

I am an ex-architect so I know that route and there
are some pieces there that work well.
