User Experience Stack Exchange is a question and answer site for user experience researchers and experts. It's 100% free, no registration required.

How can i improve my information architecture skills ? I believe in improving skills by practice. To give you an example, how about creating an application similar to any of the common application. Gather all the possibile features by comparitative analysis and then create an IA based on that. And continue practicing the same way.

It's probably only my opinion, but I don't think that fictional training helps. Being an information architect / interaction designer / UX specialist or what ever requires real data feedback, whether qualitative or quantitative, but still real. When you just analize and recreate but don't get feedback, there's nothig real to gain from. However, might be only my opinion. –  Alexej Froehlich Aug 17 '12 at 11:42

This isn't really the best place to ask such questions, i'm afraid. As per the faq "We prefer questions that elicit definitive answers or solutions rather than prolonged discussions. Remember, this a Q&A site, not a discussion board." –  JonW Aug 17 '12 at 12:52
