Description

Preliminary meeting on Wednesday, 22.10., 12:00, D247! Human-Computer Interaction is a widely multi-disciplinary field, with its diverse foundations in computer-science, social-sciences, psychology, information technology, engineering, etc... While this has certainly enriched its development, it also may hindered a common understanding of its underlying theories and models. During this seminar, participants will analyze different theories, models, and frameworks in order to create a more holistic view.
