We will offer the following practical courses (in German) this winter semester.
- 183.659 Theorie und Praxis der Evaluierung von innovativen User Interfaces
- 183.603 Seminar aus Medieninformatik
- 183.234 Forschungsmethoden
Students will learn how to plan an empirical study in HCI and how to choose appropriate research methods. These skills are important for writing bachelor and master theses; we therefore suggest to complete one of the courses beforehand. The courses are also helpful for students interested in publishing a scientific paper because they simulate a conference’s peer review process. Students may choose amongst DECO’s research topics or choose a topic of their own, including (but not limited to):
- Usability Engineering of Trust
- Text Entry Methods
- Eye Tracking
- Playful visual design
The courses will be held in three workshops. Students will elaborate a written project proposal (similar to exposés needed for diploma theses). Introduction and first workshop (attendance required) is on the 20th of October 2016, 15:30-18:30h at the INSO library (Wiedner Hauptstr. 76 / 2nd. floor).
