Description

Human-Computer Interaction (HCI) is a discipline of computer science that involves many different other disciplines, e.g., psychology, cognitive science, social science, design, ergonomics, philosophy. In particular the fundamental theories and models of HCI are almost entirely based on findings and insights from neighboring disciplines and undergo constant changes and improvements with every new generation of new computer technologies and applications. In this seminar, the participants will get an overview of the most important theories & models in HCI, their origins, and how they can be applied in practice. Participants must have successfully completed the courses "Mensch-Computer-Interaktion" oder "Computergrafik und Interaktive Systeme".
