I'm happy to let you know that a few friends and I (Marti Hearst from UC
Berkeley, Merrie Morris of Microsoft Research, Ed Chi from Google, and
Jaime Teevan, also of Microsoft Research) are teaching at half-day course
at #CHI2015 during the afternoon of Monday, April 20th, 2015.

Please see the web site:


Modern user interfaces often contain a search or find UI component so the
user can search for content in the context of the application.

While there are common practices, what actually works best in these
situations?  What kinds of search tasks are the users actually trying to
accomplish when they do a search?

In this course, we’ll review the search and findability issues that users
confront in the course of their tasks, and ways in which information can be
found.  We’ll also discuss the ways in which users seek information in
social settings.

You will learn several key design principles for creating your own search
interfaces, as well as coming to understand what is driving people to

Hope to see you there!

-- Dan, Marti, Merrie, Ed, and Jaime
