World IA Day

Posted on February 25, 2016

The average information user today expects a highly efficient and attractive experience. As user anticipation rises with the volume of data, Information Architects are more in demand. On February 21, 2015, several students and faculty from USF participated in World Information Architecture Day (WIAD), held for the first time in downtown Tampa. Joined together with locations all over the world, participants collaborated and discussed how best to shape the future of Information Architecture. USF School of Information's Dr. Heiko Haubitz joined other professionals to field questions about how Information Architects could create structures to promote a happier customer experience. Attendees also participated in workshops focused on solving real-world information architecture problems. Additionally, USF faculty Diane Austin and Donna D'Ambrosio had an opportunity to publicize USF's Bachelor of Science in Information Studies degree, and further discuss great opportunities for BSIS graduates.
