The software company I work for lost its UI expert last fall and is looking to beef up its expertise in this field by offering to train interested employees.
As a technical writer by trade, I have often found myself in a user advocate role, pleading for features to be made simpler, and I have long had an interest in usability (pretty much ever since the Macintosh came out). I have done a lot of reading on the topic as well, though nothing much in the last few years.
So now I'm looking for recommendations on where to best spend our training dollars. These can be college courses (assuming they are offered as continuing ed, especially if via the Internet), seminars, and whatever else springs to mind. What would you suggest?
BTW, we develop desktop applications, not Web apps, so I am not very interested in training that focuses on Web apps.
