The Design of Everyday Things Cover ImageThe CCUMC Professional Development Committee would like to offer a summer book read on Donald Norman’s “The Design of Everyday Things” (2013 version) and build a common vocabulary around design, share insights into our daily work practices, and begin to build a community of practice around improving user experiences.

This book can be found on Amazon as well as your local or institutional library.

The book study will consist of four, 45-minute meetings with continued online discussions over the course of the summer (June, July, August). Each meeting will include discussion about concepts Norman introduces in the book and looking for examples (or lack of examples!) of those concepts in our daily work. Participants will be encouraged to keep a journal as we read with insights, revelations, and observations about the user experiences we create and experience ourselves.

If you are interested in participating in this book study, please RSVP to express your interest. Dates for the book study discussions will be June 8, June 29, July 20 and August 10. Times are TBD. 

Participation is limited, so RSVP below today.
