Interaction design is becoming the competitive differentiator the world over. With customers becoming more savvy about technology, the stakes are rising on what it means to have good software and services. Cooper is a world leader in training people on how to rise to the challenge of creating experiences that help users achieve their goals, earning you a place in their heart.
A bit about the course
Our Interaction Design Practicum has been a popular offering since it was first launched. It's a four-day course, and it provides an overview of interaction design techniques and principles, with plenty of exercises and breakout sessions to give students a hands-on opportunity to try some of the techniques. Students enjoy opportunities to work on a "toy" problem in class, and even apply some of what they learn to an interface in the real world.
Chris Noessel is one of the Managing Directors and Practice Leads for a branch of the Interaction Design teams called Generators. (Read more if you want to learn about that distinction.) He's been in the industry his entire working career, and consulting with Cooper for seven years in domains like services, financial, medical, start-up, and consumer devices. He has personal anecdotes to share from these experiences. He also speaks internationally about topics such as technology and education, gestural technologies, big-picture trends affecting interaction design, and most notably lessons that interface designers can learn from sci-fi in the book he co-authored with Nathan Shedroff titled Make It So. (During a lunch you should totally get him to talk about it.)
Where will it be held?
We're partnering with BT Financial Group to hold the classes in their offices of Westpac Place, 275 Kent Street. It's got everything the class will need and is readily accessible from the CBD and Wynyard Station.
How much does it cost?
The cost for the course is USD 2100. We offer group discounts of 10% to teams of 4 or more registrations that come from the same company, so talk it up to your peers.
How many can attend?
The class works best between 16 and 25 students. If we wind up with much more than that, we'll consider adding a second one.
Great! How do I sign up?
We look forward to seeing you there!
