I am looking to modify the "faceted filter" on our schedule page and would like some input on what kind of UI elements I could use to enhance the experience. The current one is woefully bad and the city/miles section really doesn't work correctly, it was originally built using zip codes and converted to using cities.
What would be some good UI elements to use here and how would you see this thing working?
The URL is http://www.scic.com/schedule
The page does not validate, please don't crucify me for that, I only started work here a month ago.
I have been building a demo using the multiselect widget ( http://www.erichynds.com/jquery/jquery-ui-multiselect-widget ) for the states but not sure what I should use for the other parts.
