About the Workshop

The workshop will introduce the design methodology for pervasive information architectures which is detailed in the upcoming Pervasive Information Architecture book to the IA Summit audience.

It will acquaintance the attendees with concepts such as place-making, resilience, consistency, cross-channel experiences, and explain in detail how those are to be applied in real, day-to-day information architecture work, for better results in both ‘traditional’ projects and in new pervasive scenarios.

This will be a hands-on workshop which will:

  • introduce the methodology with a 45 mins session / presentation;
  • let people offer their comments and ideas;
  • invite them to try out the methodology on an actual case-study using pen and paper
  • discuss the results and offer everyone a chance to suggest improvements, changes, and failures

Attendees will be actively involved and will have to think, draw, sketch, and discuss for at least 3 out of the 4 hours of the workshop.

The goal of the workshop is for attendees to have a better grasp of how you can practically design for cross-channel information spaces by deploying a holistic and heuristic approach which has strong roots in the traditional design practice, but offers enough (practical and conceptual) twists to make it entertaining and worth exploring.
