Workshops in September

August 31, 2009

I’m teaching two workshops in September, and it’s not too late to sign up!

Creating and Using Concept Models

Hosted by TriUPA
Research Triangle Park, North Carolina
September 8, 2009 9am-5pm
Details and registration

The ideal tool for thinking through and designing structures for today’s web sites, concept models have become extremely popular artifacts. Creating them, and getting your team members to buy into them, can vary from challenging to really challenging.

Instead of representing individual web pages, concept models describe structures that are more appropriate for planning complex navigation strategies and working with content management systems. Their flexibility means you can apply them in a variety of circumstances and use them to describe different kinds of structures.

I’ve revamped this workshop from the ground-up, after getting lots of great feedback over the last couple of years. The content focuses more on pragmatic issues and now includes a section on translating concept models into wireframes. I’ve also created two sample models that will form the basis of our discussion.

Creating and Using Flow Charts

The Mansion at Strathmore (Bethesda, MD)
September 25, 2009 1pm-5pm
Details and registration

This is the next workshop in EightShapes’ monthly series. I’m especially excited about this one because I haven’t taught a workshop dedicated to flow charts, only as part of a larger workshop on deliverables.

Our clients are increasingly asking for flow charts (again!) since they’re crucial to planning and describing overall experiences. There are also a couple interesting variations which we’ll cover as well (storyboards, more focused on narrative; and wireflows, flow charts that integrate wireframes).

Early bird pricing (US$195!) lasts another couple weeks, so register now before the price goes up!

Hope to see you at one or both of these!
