Usability Techniques Workshops

The Technical Communicators Association of New Zealand (TCANZ) has asked me to run some Usability Techniques workshops at the end of the month.
Full details and registration at the TCANZ website:
I’m really looking forward to running these workshops. I’m aiming to make them as practical and hands-on as possible. There’ll be some “theory” of course, but mostly I want to give participants the opportunity to practice some core usability/user centred design methods.
We’ll create some user profiles (personas), carry out a card-sorting exercise, develop some paper prototypes and practice running some usability evaluations.
If you are thinking of attending the workshop, feel free to leave a comment as to what would make the workshop really useful and relevant for you.
