Information architecture (IA) training

Integrate, compose and optimise

The digital era has created an abundance of information. IA is the art of structuring and arranging that information in a way that maps to how users think and the tasks they're trying to achieve.

During this interactive, one-day workshop you'll learn how to design an information architecture for your app or website in a way that meets user needs and achieves business objectives.

You'll finish the day knowing how to:

  • Integrate IA into the product design process
    Learn how an effective information architecture can help your digital product and how IA fits into the product design process
  • Speak your users' language
    Understand how your users think about and group content and design your site's navigation accordingly
  • Plan and conduct card sorts
    You'll be able to plan, conduct and analyse this indispensable research technique
  • Understand and evaluate your content
    Evaluate whether your content meets user and business goals and understand any natural structure it has
  • Evaluate an effective information architecture
    Use techniques such as tree testing to evaluate and iterate your product's information architecture
