ANNOUNCE: Goal Oriented Design for Communication Professionals

The Southwestern Ontario Chapter of the Society for Technical
Communication (STC) invites you to join us at our annual workshop
on February 14-15, 2002 at the Holiday Inn in Kitchener, Ontario.

Kim Goodwin of Cooper Interactive Design in Palo Alto, California,
facilitates this workshop, which is based on the principles of the
highly acclaimed book by Alan Cooper, ^ÓThe Inmates Are Running the
Asylum^Ô. This workshop promises to deliver design tactics that
will result in enhanced usability, while empowering your users and
leaving them feeling satisfied.

Whether you design applications, websites, or online help systems,
the principles of this workshop are fundamental. And, this isn\'t a
workshop you can pick up just anywhere...in fact, this is the first
time that Cooper has offered a workshop like this to an STC
audience and the first time it has been offered in Canada.

For more information and registration details, visit our website at
www.stc.waterloo.on.ca or e-mail Heather_Martin101 -at- hotmail -dot- com -dot-
The registration deadline is now February 8th, 2002.
