CS 7300: Empirical Research Methods for Human Computer Interaction
Lecture - 4 credits
- Introduces concepts related to human subject studies for human computer interaction and personal health informatics.
- Discusses the methodological foundations, as well as issues of practical implementation and use.
- Provides an overview of the most common experimental designs used in these fields, and how studies should be proposed, conducted, analyzed, and documented for publication.
- Covers qualitative methods, including interviewing and focus groups, along with approaches to inductive qualitative data analysis.
- Methods discussed in the course are useful in any area of science that involves the application of the scientific method to situations involving people interacting with computational artifacts or systems, including observation, hypothesis formation, measurement, and descriptive and inferential statistical analyses.
