Abstract

This course delivers an introduction to a range of methods used in the exploration of Human-Computer Interaction (HCI) problems. Guided by leading HCI researchers and educators, attendees will be introduced to both qualitative and quantitative research methods that have been used to understand people and interactional contexts. We will also consider some of the major philosophical traditions in HCI research along with contemporary framings of HCI approaches, such as Interaction Science.
