Hey all,

I remember that previous sessions of this school were discussed on this
list. I don't think I've seen an announcement this year. I expect that
some of you may also be interested.

School -- 10 June 2006

Hi International-Usability Community,

Please share this announcement with your colleagues, friends and
students. It's perfect for new practitioners and students in the
User Experience and Technology fields.

The upcoming Convivio Interaction Design Summer School session will
be held Aug 14 - 25, 2006 in Edinburgh, Scotland.

Intensive, short-duration summer schools are a popular educational
model in various parts of the world, particularly in the User
Experience field. I have participated with Convivio in several
capacities (participant, atelier leader, lecturer) during the past
few years. And, I am really excited about the work they've done to
create intercultural, interdisciplinary teams and embed them in a
foreign culture with the express purpose of learning and practicing
Interaction Design and Research methods.

These sessions are ideal for new practitioners in the Experience
Design field as well as Masters and PhD students as from any of the
following disciplines:

--Traditional User Experience fields (HCI, Interaction Design, ID,
Graphics/Visual Communication Design, Anthropology, Sociology,
Psychology, etc)

--Technical fields such as engineering and computer science

--Other creative design disciplines (i.e. fashion design, etc)

Applications are due June 10, 2006. Please share with your friends,
students, colleagues.
