Module Description, Aims and Objectives:

Module Description, Aims and Objectives: This course is designed to train the computer science student in how to apply the theories of HCI to the task of design. It surveys the techniques available in the discipline, demonstrates where and when they are applicable and proceeds to demonstrate via a combination of scientific theory understanding and engineering modeling, and the solution of design problems facing a user interface designer.

The course surveys a wide range of psychological theories beginning with organizational behavior approaches to understanding work and workflow within organizations and moving to understanding human psychological architecture and processing constraints. It also covers new design methods and techniques available and the new conceptual mechanisms used in HCI such as the metaphors for describing user interaction.
