TIEVS60 Interaction Techniques 5-10 ECTS

Learning outcomes

After the course the student knows how to analyze, construct and evaluate the interaction techniques on different modalities and use contexts.

After the course the student:
- knows a number of models of human performance and can apply them in the analysis of interaction techniques.
- knows a number of classes of interaction techniques and a few examples in each class.
- can identify the relevance of effectiveness and efficiency in an interaction context.
- can evaluate interaction techniques through methodological triangulation in a resource efficient way.
- has begun to develop the reading skills later needed in the Master?s thesis work.
- is able to relate new research results to past research in the field.
- knows where to find and how to read research papers on interaction techniques.

Contents

The course introduces a collection of interaction techniques, technologies, and environments to provide comprehensive understanding of current and near future human-technology interaction on technical level. Interaction techniques are introduced within various interaction technology and use context related topics and are discussed in relation to models of human performance to develop modeling skills that help in evaluating the applicability, effectiveness and efficiency of interaction techniques.

The optional project work consists of implementation and evaluation of an interaction technique (10 cu).
