Education for IA: Talking Heads and That D-Word Again!

“If you consider the subject only to be concerned with organizing websites, then it is pretty clear that a master’s degree in the topic may be overkill, and a course or two within a more general program will probably suffice to get you on the path. But if, like me, you think of IA as a more encompassing effort aimed at understanding how information can be organized and presented for human and organizational use, both within and beyond websites, and addressing issues of performance effectiveness and efficiency, user satisfaction, sustainability and indeed aesthetic response to a resource, then a degree program looks to be more like a minimum requirement to get started.” (Andrew Dillon – ASIS&T Bulletin Feb. 2004)
