250-01 Human-Computer Interaction Seminar
Don't forget to fill out a course evaluation, it's online not hardcopy. You can find it on the TRUNK website, you should have received emails telling you how to access it. It is available December 5-14 only.
Have a good vacation!
- Readings and presentations (weekly)
- For each paper or topic, one student will
study the paper and present it to the class for discussion
and lead the discussion.
The other students will read the paper
before class, bring a question about the paper to class to discuss,
and participate in discussing
and evaluating the paper.
- Presentations are typically around half an hour.
The presentation should include a summary
and analysis of the paper. Then try to put this paper in perspective with respect to our
goals and framework
and also with respect to other work in its field
(this may require looking at other related papers). During and after the
presentation, the presenter will lead a discussion on the merits
of the paper and on promising new ideas or directions it suggests.
Readings and Schedule
- Choose papers you would like to read and discuss. Some possible readings
are posted here, but you are very welcome to suggest other papers.
