I know that CHI 2006 is going to be making some special efforts in the
direction of practice and design from what I was told at this years
CHI. If people here want to offer courses and workshops that will
identify to practitioners and designers, this seems like a great
opportunity.

CHI folks,

A reminder.

This year we are making many enhancements to the educational program at
CHI. The biggest changes are that courses will be merged with the rest
of the technical program and that they will be offered in units of 1.5
hours to 6 hours. We believe that previous CHI instructors will find the
new format works for the kinds of courses offered before, and we hope
that instructors new to CHI will be inspired to submit proposals that
fit our new flexibility and focus on professional development. We are
quite willing to work with potential instructors to help you craft a
course that will be attractive to a large number of conference
participants and that will fit our new format. Please contact us as
early as possible if you want this assistance.

I'd like to second what Dave is saying. As someone on the committee, I
can tell you the Chairs are making extra effort to make next year's CHI
as practioner-friendly as possible. This is something we have been
clamoring for for years, so *please*, help us make these changes
permanent by submitting and attending. This experiment will not be
successful if we cannot actually get practioners to participate.

Thanks,
Erika
