Instructor's Objectives

This seminar-based course will introduce the interdisciplinary field of human-computer interaction (HCI). Principles and methods in HCI can be used to better understand end users, solve a variety of problems in the design of technology, and invent novel forms of interaction. Focus will be on current trends in HCI research, design of interactive systems, and user-centered evaluation techniques. Students will work on a semester-long research project related to HCI. Classes will be held in the form of seminars, paper reading, and open discussions. Course material will be extracted from the current literature. Prerequisites: None
