Master Class on Human-Centered Interaction Design
Are you involved in the design of user interfaces? As you know all too well, good intentions are not enough to achieve an engaging, productive and safe experience for your users. You need to master a broad set of methods and techniques in Human-Centered Design (HCD). Practical advice and feedback from experienced HCD professionals also help.
On Tue. 09 and Wed. 10 March 2010, Namahn conducts the 15th edition of its master class on human-centered interaction design. During two days, you can experience working at Namahn first-hand and gain insight into our HCD methods and techniques, which grew from hundreds of projects in over twenty years.
Led by Tom Stevens and featuring contributions from Tom Stevens and featuring contributions from Mieke Daniels, Koen Peters, Joannes Vandermeulen, Kristel Van Ael and Johan Van Maldeghem, this highly practical master class challenges the know-how of a small group of participants and teaches them how to apply HCD techniques the Namahn way. Intensive, hands-on and intimate, the master class takes place in our library and design studio in central Brussels.
Methods and techniques include:
* Field study
* Task & requirements analysis
* Mental models
* Conceptual design
* Visual design
* Usability testing
* Design specification
For most of these items, an introduction to theory is followed by a group exercise and a discussion of results.
Other topics of interest are:
* Aligning HCD with software engineering
* Return On Investment
* Industry standards
Participating in the master class will help you to:
* Analyse and understand the context of use
* Specify requirements
* Design user interfaces from concept to detail
* Assess the usability of digital products
* Make a strong case for HCD
We start at 9.00 AM and finish at 5.00 PM. For more information, please write to masterclassHCID@namahn.com.
