See course description.

In each week’s class session, we will focus on weekly and selected readings from:
Elizabeth Goodman, Mike Kuniavsky, and Andrea Moed. Observing the User Experience: A Practitioner’s Guide to User Research. Waltham, MA: Morgan Kaufmann.

In addition, each student should have picked a context/technology which they will study. Students may work individually. Ideally, this context/technology is something the student care about, and has burning design questions they like to answer. After each week’s class session, each student is free to meet me in person to discuss his or her project in more details.

At the end of the course, each student will prepare a Final Report (individual report) – a 1500 words document to discuss his or her study + ONE key design recommendation. I will grade this document. Deadline for Final Report: May 1, 2017 (Monday)
