Learning how to do information architecture holistically is damn hard, and standard IA conferences and books often don’t deliver so much as they repeat the same tired old saws. How’s a sophomore IA to learn and improve their practice in this echo chamber? By challenging ourselves to explore disciplines outside of IA.

We’ll talk about just a few of the disciplines we can draw insight and wisdom from. We’ll learn why it’s important to make sure our findings are statistically valid, how a passion for literature translates into better communication skills, and why we should take psychology, business and relationships as seriously as we take IA. Finally, we’ll examine real-life examples of how going outside of our comfort zone can help us produce our strongest, most innovative, and best work.
