Jun 12, 2006: IA Summer Institute in Seattle

This is good to see: the University of Washington's iSchool and the IAI are co-sponsoring a five-day "Information Architecture Summer Institute" in Seattle, September 11-15. The instructors include such good people as Mike Crandall and Samantha Starmer, and the week promises the following benefits (quoting here):

  • Designed and presented by faculty from the UW Information School in collaboration with practitioners from organizations that are leaders in information architecture.
  • Participants gain theoretical and practical knowledge useful to project managers, taxonomists, Web designers and anyone who needs to successfully design large information structures to meet user needs and business requirements.
  • Enables participants to experience a variety of architectural frameworks through interactive exercises using UW computers or their own laptops.
  • For participants enrolled in a graduate program at UW, the course provides three hours of graduate credit.

When I was on the IAI board, we initiated a discussion with UW to produce an event like this, so it's great to see it taking shape.
