HCI... usability engineering Pardha Pyla...Senior Interaction Designer... researcher...software engineering...Computer Engineering and Computer Science “We are not aware of any other book, research or applied, that has the extensive coverage that we have of user experience specifications, used to set operational goals for user experience, including usability.” “No other HCI product and process book has the ready-to-use supplementary materials that offer such a low barrier for new instructors to pick up this material and teach a UE/UX course like a pro.” REFRAMING INFORMATION ARCHITECTURE A ROUND TABLE WORKSHOP AT THE IA SUMMIT 2013 - BALTIMORE

Slide 11 Keith Instone: Closing the Research-Practice Gap Do it as part of the Reframing IA process Technological, economic, social, and cultural elements of change have thoroughly transformed the scenario in which information architecture operated in the late 1990s, and a reframing is necessary to move the conversation forward, consolidate intuitions into discipline, and help establish a common language and grammar for both practice and research in the field.to identify new directions of research which might advanceboth the theory and practice of information architectureto continue bridging research and practice in the field ofinformation architecture REFRAMING INFORMATION ARCHITECTURE A ROUND TABLE WORKSHOP AT THE IA SUMMIT 2013 - BALTIMORE
