IDLAB is organising a doctoral summer school course in the frames of Tallinn Summer School. The course will take place from July 25 to July 31, 2014 in Tallinn University.
Together with a shift of emphasis from usability engineering to user experience (UX) design where users’ values, feelings and needs are regarded as important as their task-oriented performance, HCI appears to have become a cauldron in which research methods from associated disciplines are brewed. The course aims to foster participants understanding about combining different methods to address their research questions without unintended impacts on the validity of results. Topics addressed include: Ethnography, Narrative Methods, Survey Methods, Mixed Methods, Experimental Design and Ethics.
20 scholarships available, deadline May 1st!
