Conversation Design: Practical Tips for AI Design
AI has been the buzzword on everyone’s lips for the past year, but few in UX have shared the nuances of designing for non-static systems. Designing for AI means feeling comfortable with ambiguity, and there’s no one who knows this ambiguity better than a conversation designer.
While new to many, Conversation Design is an established discipline within UX that centers on conversationally-led human-computer interactions. You may have already encountered such interactions in the form of Siri or a customer support chatbot.
In this Master Class webinar, Elaine Anzaldo will introduce the foundations of conversation design and share tips so that any designer can become a successful AI designer.
- Differences between conversation design and mainstream UX.
- Challenges of designing for AI and how to prepare for them.
- Best practices for writing natural conversational scripts.
- The conversation designer’s toolkit, including voice prototyping.
- Skills you’ll need to stand out as a “niche” designer.
Dive into the world of AI design today! This is your chance to stay ahead of the curve and learn from the best practices of the fast-paced field of conversation design.
Elaine Anzaldo is a seasoned Conversation Designer, having worked on voice technologies at companies such as Meta, NLX, Apple, and SRI International.

Frequently Asked Questions
Why aren’t the Master Class webinars free of cost for members?
While the Master Class webinars aren’t free, they are open to both members and non-members of Interaction Design Foundation. While non-members pay $50 per webinar, members pay only $5. We charge this nominal fee to cover a few costs associated with producing the webinars, including:
The cost of using Zoom as our webinar partner. Zoom is one of the most reliable webinar hosting platforms, but it’s also one of the most expensive. We chose quality over affordability to bring you a better viewing experience, and the nominal fee we charge helps us cover these costs, without making the webinars expensive.
Along with the cost of Zoom, we also cover webinar costs associated with servers, payment gateways and code maintenance. In fact, 40 cents off every dollar in a transaction goes towards just the payment gateway alone!
Charging this small fee goes a long way in helping us cover these costs and enables us to continue to bring you high-quality content with the best experts.

I’m a member, but I cannot see all the Master Classes I purchased on my profile. How can I find the ones that are missing?
After each Master Class broadcast, our video editors painstakingly edit, improve and enhance the quality of these recordings to give you a better experience—but this process takes time, and that’s why there’s sometimes a delay in making them available within your profile.
Until recent Master Class recordings appear in your profile, you can always playback any of the Master Classes you’ve purchased using the Zoom recording links you received after the broadcast. Can’t find these recording links? Then please email firstname.lastname@example.org for assistance.
