As information architects we all know how important it is to keep the user in mind. The same is true in teaching IA: we must keep the learner in mind. Learning objectives are one tool to help keep your classes focused on the student. They will also help you develop the syllabus, lesson plans, and assessment methods.
Wendy's favorite use of IA is in the education environment, particularly in making the sciences accessible. She is currently helping faculty at Columbia University achieve learning objectives through the use of technology. An IA for seven years, Wendy has worked with corporate, non-profit, and educational clients and always enjoys seeing a site go live. She has a Master's from NYU's Interactive Telecommunications program and a B.S. in Science, Technology and Culture from Georgia Institute of Technology.
