Stephen Anderson's Mental Notes

Noted speaker and design consultant Stephen Anderson will host an interactive workshop about how to enhance a website or web application using principles of psychology.

The workshop will make use of Mental Notes, a tool designed by Anderson which brings together 50 insights from psychology into an easy reference and brainstorming tool.

Each card describes one insight into human behavior and suggests ways to apply this to the design of web sites, web apps, and software applications.

The workshop will also include information from Anderson’s recently published book, Seductive Interaction Design: Creating Playful, Fun, and Effective User Experiences.

The workshop is open to all ATEC and EMAC students and will be held on Friday, April 13 from 1-2:30 p.m. in the ATEC Conference Room, ATEC 1.606.
