Each theme is presented in a lecture and students are then given practical experience through assignments or exercises. The theme is then concluded by a discussion to reflect upon the practical experiences. The themes studied include:
Core concepts and main theoretical frameworks
Methods to identify user requirements
Selection criteria for studies and what consequences these have
Consequences of the context of studies
Mediation artifacts
Theoretical and empirical perspectives

Learning outcomes (after completion of the course the student should be able to)


  • Describe and discuss the methodological decisions to be made when
    planning a study with the purpose of collecting and analysing
    information on user requirements for interactive artefacts

  • Describe and discuss what and how different methodological choices
    will affect the character of the information gatherered

  • Explain the impact of methodological choices on the character of
    the
    information gatherered

Content

The course consists of lectures, seminars and exercises around on a
