Information Design 101

A session at Technical Communication UK 2012

Tuesday 2nd October, 2012

11:00am to 1:30pm (GMT)

In the spirit of the topics of usability and accessibility, Information Design 101 is an introduction to the principles of making information easy to understand. Taking a document collectively selected by potential workshop attendees, this workshop will guide attendees through a number of basic information design techniques, to end the session with a new improved (and easier to use) document. These techniques will include typography, plain language and document structure – all demonstrated using everyday software. This workshop will be a hands on session, with attendees encouraged to bring a laptop with Microsoft Word to try out some of the techniques themselves.

If you'd like to suggest the sort of document you'd want to work on in this session, please see Robert's website.
