I currently teach graduate courses in the Luddy School of Informatics, Computing, and Engineering at Indianapolis.
This is a two-part course series, which fulfills the final HCI MS project requirement. Part One should showcase the accumulative knowledge of the student in the areas of product design and development. Students will explore relevant and applied research concepts, while considering various HCI design approaches. In Part Two, students will complete design and evaluation of a capstone project. The project will showcase the accumulative knowledge of the student in the areas of product assessment and documentation. Final outcomes will include the completion of the second half of the final project, i.e. product testing and analysis and writing of the paper.
This course covers basic principles of human computer interaction (HCI). This course will expose you to practical user experience (UX) design techniques and formative and evaluative UX research methods and to basic principles, methods, open questions, and challenges within HCI.
The course provides students with a broad overview of the fundamental research methods in HCI and related areas, introducing students to various types of research approaches, research designs, including hypothesis-driven research, exploratory research, and empirical research approaches, both qualitative and quantitative. The course provides the conceptual framework in which informatics graduate students may develop their own research agenda. Students will engage with multiple research techniques through readings and discussion. Students will also prepare and receive feedback on a research proposal.
