Hi All,

A long-time product manager that I know is thinking of expanding
her repertoire with some IxD skills. She's asking me if Tog's IxD
101 is any good, but I don't know offhand anyone that's taken it.

Thoughts out there? Are there other options that you'd suggest in
the intensive realm for a relative newbie to IxD?

Thanks!
Chris

The new and improved Interaction Design workshop I teach as part of UX
Intensive is fine for beginners and intermediate interaction designers
alike. I'm teaching it in Minneapolis next month:

<http://www.adaptivepath.com/events/2008/jun/ixd.php>

It's a hands-on studio workshop that walks through the design process,
starting with conceptual models and going through brainstorming,
design principles, methods, and prototyping. (It's a full day!)

Use my discount code of FODS and get 10% off.

Thanks, Dan. I've definitely encouraged her to consider the
Intensive.

If people in and about the NYC area have an interest in something IxD
educational, I'm teaching a class through SmartExperience.org
starting the end of this month.

More info here:
http://smartexperience.org/classes/ixd-ria/

it is being run as a 1/2 seminar and 1/2 studio course in IxD for
applications on the internet. (No coding! unless you want to)

I attended this in New York in April. I would definitely recommend it
if you're looking for a 360-degree
jump-right-in-and-get-your-feet-wet introduction to Interaction
Design. Some of the topics were a review of concepts I was already
familiar with, but I found the juxtaposition of them very inspiring.
I still find myself making connections and following up on things I
had made notes about and wanted to research further.

Over the course of the 3 days the attendees break into small groups
and to work on an example design problem from initial problem
definition/brainstorming through execution of a paper prototype with
testing. It lets you put into action some of the concepts Tog
lectures about, and to me that hand-on involvement is a great way to
make it stick.

Go into it with an open mind and you will be rewarded.
