What can interaction designers learn from usability testing? Quite a bit!
Usability testing is a great tool for improving and validating designs. Not

This IxDA Los Angeles Salon will be lead by interaction designers and
usability practitioners who help us discuss the following questions:
- At what point in the interaction design process should usability

- What kinds of tests are most helpful for interaction design?
- Who should perform the tests? Labs vs. in-house.
- How to best analyze and interpret results to improve interaction
