Mål og innhald

The aim of the course is to give an understanding of the current trends in HCI (Human-Computer Interaction) research. The students will gain knowledge about a range of advanced concepts and approaches related to analysis and design of interactive systems.

The course will introduce the students to a variety of modern interaction techniques, styles and paradigms, as well as main challenges for conducting interaction design activities, presented by new interactive technologies. An overview of key research on personal technologies, technology-enabled ecologies and habitats, and the "design turn" in HCI will be provided within the course. Main theoretical approaches in HCI, including activity theory, distributed cognition, and phenomenology, will be discussed and related to concrete research and development in the field.
