CSE 510: Advanced Topics in Human Computer Interaction

Winter Quarter 1999


General Information

Time: Winter Quarter, Tues Thurs 10:30-11:50, Loew 112

CSE 510 this coming quarter will cover a variety of topics in human-computer interaction. My intent is that the students will provide a firm foundation for students interested in doing research in HCI, as well as providing a survey for students who are working in other areas but who want to understand the field.

A mailing list for the class is set up under majordomo. To subscribe, send a message to "majordomo@cs" with no subject and with

in the body.

Course Coordination

Human computer interaction is an eclectic field, drawing on a variety of disciplines. I will be collaborating with Judy Ramey from Technical Communication in offering the course. If possible, we'd like students to attend lectures in Judy's Usability Testing course (TC 517) during couple of weeks of the quarter as well as 510. TC 517 meets Tues Thurs 4:30-5:50, Loew 111. (We'll lighten up the 510 load later to compensate.) Another very relevant class is TC 521, "Issues in Usability", meeting Fridays 12:30-1:20 in Loew 117.

Tom Furness from the HIT Lab will also give several lectures, and I plan to have a number of other speakers from outside UW as well. (See the course schedule for dates.)
