FS 2022 - Human–Computer Interaction

1714 – Human–Computer Interaction

Course description

The Human-Computer Interaction (HCI) course provides students with a comprehensive "toolkit" of principles, processes, and approaches for designing interactive systems that address human needs and provide a good user experience. Central to the course is the human-centered design process which focuses on understanding problems from the human perspective, the iterative design cycle, and continuous analysis of design through gathering design feedback.

The course is structured around a semester-long team project addressing a real-world human problem through HCI approaches. Lectures will teach the principles, theory, and methods that are fundamental to Human-Computer Interaction. Students will learn to apply this knowledge in practice through the multi-part team project.
