Understanding people: A course on qualitative and quantitative HCI research methods

in Conference on Human Factors in Computing Systems - Proceedings, Conference paper (text)


Copyright © 2017 by the Association for Computing Machinery, Inc. (ACM).This course will provide an introduction to methods used in Human-Computer Interaction (HCI) research. An equal focus will be given to both the quantitative and qualitative research traditions used to understand people and interactional contexts. We shall discuss these major research traditions along with their contemporary framings (e.g., in-the-wild research and Interaction Science). By the end of the course attendees will have a detailed understanding of how to select and apply methods to address a range of problems that are of concern to contemporary HCI researchers.
