(:cellnr:) If you are not prepared (:cell cellspan=2 :) I would be happy to talk to you about your prospects. Email me. If you do not have any background in HCI, interface design, or human factors, you will have to bring yourself up to speed on your own time. You can gain background in several ways.

  • review, sit in or take the undergraduate HCI course (CPSC 481) during the term
  • read several of the background books mentioned in the background reading list

(:cellnr:) Structure and work load (:cell cellspan=2 :) The course is a seminar and project-based course that meets for a total of 2.5 hours per week. For each class, you will:

  • have a heavy required reading load.
  • take turns presenting and leading discussions on the material you have read.
  • participate in all discussions of the material.

During the term, you will:

  • research a particular methodology, where you will deliver an in-depth oral and written introduction and tutorial;
  • pursue a project involving an evaluation, where you will apply a methodology to a particular problem defined by you, by others, or by the instructor;
  • carry out exercises on particular methods

(:cellnr:) Purpose of course (:cell cellspan=2 :) This course stresses evaluation methodologies for performing research in Human Computer Interaction (HCI). In particular, students will:

  • investigate, compare and contrast a wide variety of existing evaluation methodologies,
  • understand where and how each methodology is appropriate to particular interface design and evaluation situation,
  • apply several of these methodologies to HCI problems,
  • gain first-hand in-depth experiences with a particular methodology by designing, running, and interpreting a study of the student's choosing.

(:cellnr:) Who should take this course (:cell cellspan=2 :) The fully prepared student:

  • has already taken CPSC 481: Human Computer Interaction I (or equivalent)
  • has practice designing and evaluating interfaces using usability engineering techniques,
  • is now pursuing a graduate project that has a major interface component in it.


Graduates and professionals outside of Computer Science can participate in this course (requires discussion and permission of the instructor):

  • Psychology / Human Factors / Educational Psychology
  • Industrial Design
  • Computational Media Design
  • Professionals working with interface design and/or evaluation

  • apply several of these methodologies to HCI problems,
  • gain first-hand in-depth experiences with a particular methodology by designing, running, and interpreting a study of the student's choosing.
Added lines 24-36:

(:cell:) The fully prepared student

* has already taken CPSC 481: Human Computer Interaction I (or equivalent),

  • has practice designing and evaluating interfaces using usability engineering techniques,
  • is now pursuing a graduate project that has a major interface component in it.


Graduates and professionals outside of Computer Science take the course as well

* Psychology / Human Factors / Educational Psychology

  • Industrial Design
  • Professionals working with interface design and/or evaluation

(:cell:) This course stresses evaluation methodologies for performing research in Human Computer Interaction (HCI). In particular, students will:

  • investigate, compare and contrast a wide variety of existing evaluation methodologies,
  • understand where and how each methodology is appropriate to particular interface design and evaluation situation,
  • apply several of these methodologies to HCI problems,
  • gain first-hand in-depth experiences with a particular methodology by designing, running, and interpreting a study of the student's choosing.
