Design Facilitation and Collaborative Design - Mini Workshop w/Sarah Bloomer
(June 24) - For our June 2009 meeting, we are very excited to have Sarah Bloomer with us to lead a workshop on collaborative and co-design. Collaborative and co-design design yields new ideas by engaging different knowledge, outlooks, goals and perspectives. It can also speed up design. Collaborative design can be done with customers, stakeholders, designers and developers. The trick is how to keep a team focused and engaged. Facilitating design is a skill with some simple rules of thumb that Sarah will share with us through a hands on workshop.

(June 24) - "Sketching for Interaction Design" is a 1-day seminar and workshop created to teach people what sketching really is all about, why it is powerful and how you can bring it into your daily practice as a User Experience Professional. In this class you'll learn how the great organizations of design and innovation use sketching in their daily practice. You will also gain practice in sketching and see why it is a distinctive tool from prototyping geared more towards idea generation than for testing and communication. It is both a tool for personal use, and a tool for group collaboration.
