Human-Computer Interaction: Fall 2014


Jacek Gwizdka


University of Texas at Austin


Fall 2014


This course will introduce you to human-computer interaction theories and design processes. The emphasis will be on applied user experience (UX) design. The course will present an iterative evaluation-centered UX lifecycle and will introduce you to a broader notion of UX, including usability, usefulness, and emotional impact. The lifecycle should be viewed as template intended to be instantiated in many different ways to match the constraints of a particular development project. The UX lifecycle activities we will cover include contextual inquiry and analysis, requirements extraction, design-informing models, design thinking, ideation, sketching, conceptual design, and formative evaluation.

Required Textbook:

Hartson, H. R., Pyla, P. S. 2012. The UX Book: Process and Guidelines for Ensuring a Quality User Experience.
