PRESENTATION:

Human-Computer Interaction (HCI) is the study of the principles and methods with which one builds effective interfaces for users. This course will introduce computer science students to the theory and practice of developing user interfaces. Practical concerns will be balanced by discussion of relevant theory from the literature of computer science, cognitive psychology, and industrial design. Students will also participate in group projects to design, implement, and evaluate user interfaces.

 

PROFESSIONAL COMPETENCES ACQUIRED IN THE SUBJECT:

General programme competences G02 Innovative capacity to propose and find new and efficient ways to undertake any task and/ or function within the professional environment - highly motivated by quality.
G03 Capacity to work in multidisciplinary teams to achieve common objectives, placing group interests before personal ones.
G10 Critical and analytical capacity when assessing information, data and courses of action.
G12 Capacity to undertake professional activities with integrity, respecting social, organisational and ethical norms.
Specific programme competences E01 Capacity to understand the engineering profession and commitment to serve society under the corresponding professional code of conduct.
E03 Capacity to recognise the technical principles and apply the appropriate practical methods satisfactorily to analyse and solve engineering problems.
E08 Capacity to communicate productively with clients, users and colleagues both orally and in writing, so as to pass on ideas, solve conflicts and achieve agreements.
E10 Capacity to understand and assess the impact of technology on individuals, organisations, society and the environment, including ethical, legal and political factors, recognising and applying the pertinent standards and regulations.
E12 Capacity to manage complexity through abstraction, modelling, 'best practices', patterns, standards and the use of the appropriate tools.
E13 Capacity to identify, assess and use current and emerging technologies, considering how they apply in terms of individual or organisational needs.
E17 Capacity to identify and analyse user needs with the intention of designing effective, usable IT solutions which can be incorporated into the user's operating environment.
Learning outcomes R01 Analyse the man-machine interaction of a computing system.
R02 Assess the man-machine interaction of a computing system, noting the strong and weak points and proposing possible improvements.

TEACHING AND LEARNING METHODOLOGIES AND ACTIVITIES:

Teaching and learning methodologies and activities applied:

During this course a variety of teaching methods will be used including lectures, class discussions, case studies, and group work. One of the main requirements of this course is to complete a group work project and to present it to the class. Another important requirement is to participate actively in class and to contribute to discussion about the topics being analyzed.
