Special Topics in Information: Interaction Design

INF3101H — Special Topics in Information: Interaction Design
This course surveys theories of HCI design, models of user interfaces, interface design,  and empirical approaches for analyzing systems and interfaces. Through individual and/or group research projects, this course emphasizes applied user experience (UX) design grounded in a multi-disciplinary analysis of the interplay between human factors, human perception, and societal and cultural dimensions. Students will evaluate designs of emerging, novel interactions through an emphasis on UX lifecycle, usability, utility, and acceptance.

Enrollment in this course is prioritized for PhD students.
