The IA suggestions presented in this session share the goal of improving the quality of online discourse and building platforms that optimize for collaborating on solutions rather than just trying to see who's right.
This talk relates to the IA for Good because it explains work done to help people better understand information they receive from each other and official sources, that’s specific to where they live.
The "Curse of Knowledge." This is when an expert knows too much about a product and makes assumptions about what others know, which can lead to a mangled experience. The digital version of this is when a system makes automated assumptions of the end user's goal.
This information overload is both a blessing and a curse. The more teams/systems involved the bigger the mess, but the more thorough the information becomes. As information architects, we need to create an understandable version of that mess and present the users with simplified, non-presumptuous information upon which to act.
UX Diplomacy will give helpful tips on how to inspire a team to not only do their best in times of organizational chaos, but discover new skills and confidence.
Validating IA is a big part developing user friendly digital experiences. This talk will focus on how to rapidly validate IA and have some fun in the process.
This talk will explore how information architecture can facilitate the safe and reliable sharing of valid information in the context of health and health information seeking. We will discuss examples, challenges and opportunities in having IA as a catalyst for patient and family engagement unleashing the potential of citizen science in the biomedical and health sciences domain.
All of us will need the web to be accessible, if not today, then someday in the future, and if not permanently, then temporarily. An information architecture that only serves the people who come to us with all of their potential faculties in tact is a flawed architecture that fails to serve our users.
