Advanced Human-Computer Interaction: HCI Forschungsmethoden und Theorie(n)


engl. Beschreibung/ Kurzkommentar

The course will introduce students to the different types of research methods commonly used within HCI research in order to study and understand people, from quantitative experimental studies to qualitative research methods and mixed method strategies, and will present example case studies illustrating the use of these methods. The focus of this course lies on qualitative methods (e.g. interviews and observation) and qualitative data analysis (that is, approaches which do not rely on statistical analysis). You will gain practical experience in utilizing a selection of these methods through practical assignments and mini-projects, and will work with the research literature.

The course will furthermore provide an overview of how the role of theory in HCI has expanded from the early days of human factors and mathematical modelling of behaviour to include explanatory and generative theories, which reflect influences from fields such as design, sociology, and ethnography.

Successful students should be able to
-    appreciate the diversity of research methods and relate them to research paradigms and theory
-    select research methods appropriate to the domain and research question, based on an understanding of the characteristics, strengths and
     weaknesses, and practical demands of methods  
-    utilize a range of HCI research methods and approaches to investigate a research question  
-    report and present user studies and findings properly
-    relate the role of theory in HCI to the expanding range of methodical approaches utilized for HCI research

Due to the current situation, the course will be taught online, with a Moodle page as main entry point where you find all further details and access to contents and sessions. Please prepare for a mix of synchronous teaching (where you need to be online at specific times) and asynchronous delivery.

We will start with recorded lectures, but might switch to live-lectures (if this proves to work out). We plan to run the practical sessions in real-time via University online platforms. We also plan a half-hour real-time check-in session per week for discussion and questions. Provided in-person teaching may be allowed again, we may do a few in-presence sessions later in the semester, if this does not leave out any of the participants.

Students need to organize themselves into small groups for assignments and should thus be able to communicate, at least remotely, with each other.


Main texts (in excerpts):

Lazar et al. Research Methods in Human-Computer Interaction

Cairns & Cox. Research Methods for Human-Computer Interaction. Cambridge Univ Press

Yvonne Rogers, HCI Theory. Morgan & Claypool


Additional readings:

Andy Field and Graham Hole. How to Design and Report Experiments. Sage

Uwe Flick. Introduction to Qualitative research. Sage 2014



Via practical assignments, this includes four pieces of group work and one individual assignment.

M.Sc. HCI students on the new MdU_29_2019 regulations, who require 6 ECTS need to do a number of (smaller) individual tasks on top of the above at their own pace over the course of the semester. They can choose these from a set of tasks we provide.
