The third of three talks in a monthly series on practical user experience design will be offered at 6:30pm on Thursday, November 18th, 2010 at Drew University in Madison, New Jersey.
In the third talk, which is scheduled for Thursday, November 18th, Duane Degler will offer his perspective on how to anchor teams in a shared vision of what they are building. How much design is the right amount? The answer depends on the size of the team and the ways that the members work together.
Duane Degler is co-owner of Design for Context, a small firm in the Washington, DC area. He has consulted on business strategy and designed large-scale infrastructure for clients such as the National Archives electronic records program, the Social Security Administration’s policy content management group, and VeriSign, among others. He's particularly fond of complex problems that defy conventional solutions.
The Interaction Design Association works to improve the human condition by advancing the discipline of interaction design. The IxDA Northern New Jersey local group meets monthly to foster a local community of professionals and students who seek to improve their understanding and skills in interaction design and related user experience disciplines.
Drew University's highest priority is excellent, liberal education in a changing world. Its programs prepare individuals for significant contributions to society by promoting intellectual rigor and an ethos of curiosity and achievement in an intentionally intimate community of learning.
